A stamp collection belonging to former Beatle John Lennon has gone on sale in London for £29,950.
The album is on display at Fraser's Autograph Gallery in London
As a schoolboy he collected 565 stamps from countries including Australia, India, USA, Germany and Italy.
The stamps, which are still in their original album, were acquired from a collector in the United States.
Richard Purkis, from autograph and stamp traders Stanley Gibbons, says the album shows stamp collecting appeals to a broad spectrum of people.
"For a schoolboy collection, it is quite impressive and for a John Lennon fan, it is a wonderful piece of memorabilia," he said.
"An interest in stamps demonstrates an interest in different countries, cultures and art, so perhaps we should not be surprised that it appealed to a creative person like John Lennon."
The album is currently on display at Fraser's Autograph Gallery in London.
Lennon wrote his name and address in the flysheet, signing his name in blue ballpoint pen.
