SCARCE Dual Signed Lennon & McCartney Bank Check--Signed The Final Weekend They Ever Saw Each Other!

Rare and extraordinarily desirable signed bank check, 7.75" x 3.5", MacLen Music Ltd account, dated April 23, 1976. The check showcases exceptional signature from the iconic songwriting duo, with McCartney executing in blue ink and Lennon in black ink, with both identified as directors of the publishing company. A couple staple holes are present in the upper left corner, otherwise this check is in superb condition, with the autographs fully authenticated and receiving the lofty but deserving grade of MINT 9 from the experts at Beckett Authentication Services (BAS).

The collectible nature of this Beatles relic is multi-faceted. First and foremost, dual signed bank checks from John Lennon and Paul McCartney are of the utmost rarity, with only a handful of examples ever surfacing in the collectible realm and this standing as arguably the finest of them all. In addition to it's aesthetic appeal, the date of this check also holds great importance in Beatles history as it was signed on the weekend that would serve as the last time that Lennon and McCartney would ever see each other. A roller coaster of events, the weekend started with Lennon and McCartney first tending to some business matters, with the pair signing this check on Friday, April 23rd. The following evening the pair would spend time with each other at the Dakota (Lennon's home in NYC) and even considered an impromptu reunion at Saturday Night Live that evening. The following day, things would take an unfortunate turn when Lennon turned away McCartney at the door of his home when he showed up unannounced, thus leading to a rift that led to the pair never seeing each other again.

From quality to rarity to significance--this check has it all. Beatles collectors take notice!
