Shadowbox containing dinner jacket owned and worn by John Lennon in 1975 and an Al Hirschfield lithograph depicting the Beatles star. The bespoke black double breasted jacket, manufactured by Kaborn tailors, features Lennon's initials stitched into the inside armpit. It was donated by Lennon to the Philadelphia radio station WFIL's 1975 Helping Hand Charity Marathon and then acquired by Bryan Murphy (curator for the Hard Rock Cafe). Included in the shadowbox are 3 photographic prints of Lennon wearing the jacket, a flyer for the Helping Hand Marathon, and a 1975 newspaper article reporting on Lennon's US deportation lawsuit, as well as informational text about the case and facsimile of Lennon's Green Card. The Al Hirschfield (1903-2003) lithograph, "Peace and Liberty, 2001), partially inspired by Lennon's deportation battle, depicts Lennon standing before the Statue of Liberty and is signed and numbered 192/300. Print - Sight: 21"H x 15"W. Overall frame - 40 1/2"H x 62 1/2"W. Includes Certificates of Authenticity from The Fame Bureau, Sept. 24, 2013, and Funtyme Memorabilia.
