RARE, Two Virgins Album Signed by
John Lennon and Yoko Ono

LENNON, John (1940-1980) and Yoko Ono(1933-   ) Their album Two Virgins.  Apple Records, May 1968.  The record is contained in the RARE  album cover. Boldly inscribed by John Lennon on the album cover, the side which depicts him and Yoko Ono in full frontal nudity. Lennon writes: “To Jule love John Lennon”.  Yoko has added, using the same collector’s pen: “and Yoko Ono NYC 77”.  Also present is the album cover jacket which was issued to cover the nude photos of this famous couple. This highly prized collectible comes with a full page handwritten letter of authenticity from one of the most noted “in person” collectors of musical autographs. His name is Pete Connolly of New York.  Pete, is one of the original “in person” collectors who is very well known in the hobby amongst his peers. He is the collector who supplied many of the legitimate galleries with guitars and other musical instruments signed by many of the rock and roll notables. Many of the Stars know Pete by his first name. Pete’s handwritten letter  of authentication and original envelope comes together with this album.  Pete writes: “John Lennon & Yoko Ono-2 Virgins. This album was obtained in person by myself on Oct. 9, 1977 outside The Tavern On The Green Restaurant in New York for a birthday party for John and his 2 year old son Sean. John was holding something in his hand so he scrawled his inscription and signature ‘To Jule’ which he has done on other occasions for other autograph seekers. Jule may be his way of love for his son Julian or one can use their imagination especially in the case of John. Shortly afterwards Yoko signed: “Yoko Lennon NYC 77”.  I certify that the above is a true statement and both autographs were obtained at that time, place and date and are genuine and signed in front of me.  Sincerely, Pete Connolly.”  The record and album cover are in fine condition. The album jacket shows a little wear. A remarkable collectible. $9,500.00

Polk, Columbia, Tennessee. A dark ink hand stamp at left corner “Nashville, TN, Aug.11” and “Free” handstamp.  Intact black wax seal on verso. Collector’s note along front left corner of the cover.

He served as Minister to the Kingdom of the two Sicilies (present day Italy). He was Major of the Third Dragoons in the Mexican American War (1847-1848). President Polk died on June 15, 1849, just four months after leaving the Executive Mansion. This cover was signed just two months later.
