Description

Post-breakup check signed by Lennon and McCartney

Sought-after Maclen (Music) Ltd. business check, 8 x 3.5, filled out in another hand and prominently signed by Lennon and McCartney as company directors, payable to Arthur Young McClelland Moores & Co., for £2052, June 27, 1975. In fine condition. Maclen Music was the company through which Lennon and McCartney received songwriting royalties for the songs they wrote together during the Beatles days. Both were well into their solo careers by this point, with both releasing albums in 1975—McCartney’s Wings came out with their fourth album, Venus and Mars, and Lennon released his sixth, Rock 'n' Roll. Post-Beatles material signed by both Lennon and McCartney are extremely scarce, with this example augmented by large, ideal signatures.
