Lennon's jacket sold for £6,900 at Hansons. Incredibly low price for what I think is quite a nice item. Anyone know anything I don't?

Bidders were put off by the lack of provenance. It was 'he said, she said' provenance. Supposedly taken by the Beatles PA, then handed to a friend of hers as their birthday present 40 years ago. The auctioneer also made odd comments that "There is no doubt, in my mind, that this jacket was well worn by John in the late 1960s,". How would he know? Seems a sales rhetoric to drive up the price, in my opinion.
