    Description

    John Lennon Limited Edition Music Box 1 of 70 (1983). In 1983 Yoko Ono supervised the making of 70 music boxes in Bermuda as gifts to a select few radio and music personalities It's made of Bermudian cedar, John's favorite wood, and has an engraved silver plaque that reads "MILK & HONEY, LOVE, YOKO & SEAN, XMAS '83, N.Y.C." The 4 AA battery-driven cassette player plays a home recording of John singing Grow Old With Me , which was written in July 1980 in Bermuda and dedicated to Yoko.

    This particular box was given to Bill Levy personally by Yoko and is numbered 1/70, engraved on the bottom with the date 12/25/83. Levy was Creative Vice President of Polygram Records and had worked with Yoko on several album projects in the '80s, including Milk & Honey. It comes with a lyric printout of John's original song, a promotional folder for John's lithograph collection of hand-written lyrics, and a two-page account of events leading to Yoko's presentation of the gift to Levy. This exquisite piece, which measures 9" x 6" x 3", may not be one-of-a-kind, but it's pretty close!

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
