    Description

    The Beatles: John Lennon's Grammy Presenter's Medal (1975). Attractive bronze medal, approximately 3" in diameter, presented by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences to John Lennon for his participation as a presenter in the 1975 Grammy Awards. The front side of the medal features a detailed engraving of the prestigious Grammy award while the reverse bears an engraved dedication that reads, "In Appreciation - John Lennon - 'The Grammy Awards Show' - Telecast 1975." Housed in its original wooden presentation case, the medal stands in excellent condition. Always the consummate philanthropist, Lennon sent the medal to Tipton High School in Tipton, Indiana, when the school solicited Lennon in 1976 for a donation to an auction fundraiser. Accompanying the medal is the original mailing envelope from Lennon Music to Tipton High School, postmarked March 19, 1976, in which Lennon originally sent the medal. Note the photo of John Lennon and Yoko Ono from the night of the Grammy Awards, below. From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.
