John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s Peace Poster Sells for $154,000
London-based Christie's auctioned off the sign as a part of its Rock and Pop Memorabilia sale.

If you’re a protester down at Occupy Wall Street, a peace sign won’t get you much (though it might spare you from getting pepper sprayed). If you were the family auctioning memorabilia off at Christie’s on Nov. 15, however, a peace sign got you plenty. We’re talking $154,000 kind of plenty.The peace sign that was auctioned was the famous placard that read “Bed Peace” from John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s 1969 “bed in” in Montreal. The sign was taped to the window above their Queen Elizabeth Hotel bed where the couple stayed for seven straight days. The former Beatle and his wife staged the event as a non-violent act of protest in the name of peace during the Vietnam War.
