A generous collection of Harrison’s hair, measuring up to 1.5″ long, part of a larger group which was originally presented by Harrison to Beatles Fan Club secretary Freda Kelly as part of a promotion for their fan club. Hair is sealed in a Mylar sleeve and affixed to a numbered certificate of authenticity. Also accompanied by a color copy of the front of the original on which Harrison wrote, “real George Harrison hair (13/got a bunch),” and a printed statement from Kelly on how the hair was acquired. In very fine condition. As they burst on the scene, one of the band’s most identifiable and lasting looks were there ‘moptop’-style haircuts, which would become a world-wide style in the mid 1960s. When George was asked what he calls his hairstyle by a reporter at New York’s Plaza, he dryly replied ‘Arthur.’ That question would be used again in their upcoming film A Hard Day’s Night.
