Heritage Auctions, based in Dallas, Texas, said the four-inch piece of hair was bought by Paul Fraser, a memorabilia collector from the UK.

The lock is said to be the “largest lock of Lennon’s hair” ever sold at auction and was trimmed in September 1966 during the filming of Richard Lester-directed movie How I Won The War. Lennon appeared as Musketeer Gripweed in the film.
