Brilio.net - Just a few years after The Beatles was awarded MBE (Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) in October 1965 by Queen Elizabeth II, John Lennon reportedly wrote a letter to the Queen stating that he wanted to return the medal.

Unfortunately, the letter was reported to be missing until a man whose identity is hidden recently found it by accident, tucked away in a record he had purchased for £10 or Rp 160,899.33. The letter itself is said to be valued at £60,000 or Rp 965,439,000.

On the letter, John explained the reason why he returned the medal, citing the Kingdom’s involvement in the Biafran War.

According to Darren Julien, a music memorabilia expert, as cited from CNN, the smeared ink in the paper could be the reason why Lennon did not end up sending the letter. There is also a possibility that the singer had re-written it. "If you're writing to The Queen, you want the letter to look perfect, you don't want the ink to be smudged."
