A selection of rare Bob Dylan memorabilia is currently open for bids in RR Auction'slatest online sale, which closes on September 26.

Bob Dylan signed harmonicaAnother Dylan signed harmonica sold for $2,304 at Julien's Auctions in 2011

The collection includes a Bob Dylan signed harmonica, which is currently selling at $484 but will undoubtedly reach a far higher sum as the auction draws to its close.

The harmonica, a Hohner Marine Band in the key of E, was personally played by Bob Dylan and is signed neatly across the top in black felt pen. A characteristic feature of his early sound, it is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Roger Epperson/REAL.

RR Auction rightly describes Dylan as "doubtlessly the most sought after living legend", with his items particularly coveted by collectors.

Also featuring is a signed Carnegie Hall programme from 1964, currently selling at $294.It is inscribed: "Eve, you were the one who said I would get here on my own! - love, Bob, Gig's poem great Tell her thanks!"

The piece is especially valued as Carnegie Hall is a hugely important venue inthe folk singer's career.Dylan's 1961 concert at the Carnegie Hall was his first major show outside of Greenwich's coffeehouse music scene.

Dylan has since released a six-song live album of his 1963 concert at the Carnegie Hall in 2005.

Paul Fraser Collectibles has a fantastic signed set list from Bob Dylan for sale, which includes some of his most famous tracks.
