Exceedingly rare Lennon post-Beatles financial document

Very rare notarized financial DS, one page both sides, 5 x 6, February 18, 1975. Barclay’s Bank Power of Attorney form in which Lennon appoints, “David Miller my true and lawful attorney, for me and in my name, place and stead to make, sign, and execute any and all checks, drafts or other instruments upon all funds standing to my credit on the books of Barclays Bank of New York.” Signed at the conclusion in black felt tip, “John Lennon.” Double matted and framed, so both sides of the document may be viewed, with a color portrait of Lennon, to an overall size of 19.25 x 14.75. In fine condition, with a central horizontal fold. Accompanied by two letters of authenticity from noted Beatles expert Frank Caiazzo, both dated August 24, 2006, one authenticating the signature, the other appraising the document at $4500. Caiazzo states ‘This is the current market value, as well as the current replacement value of this item as of this date.’ In both letters he also states, ‘Personal John Lennon financial related documents such as this one are extremely rare, and they were never meant to be in collector’s hands.’ Pre-certified Roger Epperson/REAL and RR Auction COA.
