The leather jacket George Harrison wore at The Beatles' gigs in The Cavern could fetch up to €150,000 at auction.

The guitarist also wore the trademark coat in Hamburg where the Fab Four played countless club dates before they hit the big time.

In 1964 George gave the jacket to his elder brother Harry. It was then passed on to Harry’s son Paul, who used to wear it to school in the 1970s.

The jacket has a pre-sale estimate of between €113,000 and €150,000. It could fetch much more when it is sold at auction house Bonhams in December.

“The Beatles’ early signature leather look, which included a black leather jacket, became an iconic element of their stage shows,” says a spokesman for Bonhams.
