    John Lennon and Jimmy Carter Signed Cymbal (1977). Here is quite an interesting item that should appeal to both music and political collectors. A Krut 13" cymbal signed by both in black ink: "Jimmy Carter/ 1-9-1977" and "John Lennon". This was just twelve days before his inauguration and Jimmy Carter attended one of the many balls and parties given in Washington, D.C. This one, though, was also attended by John Lennon and Yoko Ono (in evening attire) who thought the liberal-leaning Carter would almost certainly be a better president than Nixon or Ford. Unique in our experience. Carrying case included. Light wear and toning, fine.

    This brand was a cheap line made in England in the 1950s by Premier Drum Company. There are reports that Ringo, in his days with Rory Storm, sometimes played Krut cymbals. COA from Heritage Auctions.
