Lot 750: Rare Maclen (Music) Ltd. business check, 8 x 4, filled out in another hand and boldly signed by Lennon, payable to Audiotek for £156-15-0, July 7, 1970. In fine condition, with punch and staple holes to top edge, a small red ink cancellation through a single letter of signature, and expected bank stamps, none detracting from the overall impressive size and crispness of the signature. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo. Lennon had left the Beatles the previous September and was working on his debut solo album, which would be released in late 1970. Lennon checks are quite uncommon, particularly those drawn from his publishing company, with this one boasting a signature almost 4.5? long.
