    Beatles Related - John Lennon's Cap from 1963. On November 4, 1963, the Beatles played a Royal Command performance in London for the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret. The group was number seven on a 19-act bill, but were definitely the main event. During the rehearsals in the days leading up to the show, members of the Beatles became friends with many of the other performers, including American singer and pianist Buddy Greco -- so much so that when Greco presented George Harrison and John Lennon with a copy of his most recent recording, Harrison returned the gesture with an autograph and Lennon by giving away his cap. This black wool seaman's cap has the initials "J.L." written on the lining in black ink, and was carefully stored and preserved by Greco for decades. It is in Excellent condition, accompanied by a notarized LOA from Greco.
