93486597When Beatles member John Lennon declared his 'Bed-in' in Montreal with wife Yoko Ono back in 1969, the world watched with baited breath as the two spent a famous week in bed in a bid to promote peace and love. Now, a relic from the event is set to be sold at auction this month - and is expected to fetch a whopping $160,000. A placard denoting 'Bed' and 'Peace' - words written by the legend himself - will be featured in a Christie's sale of pop culture memorabilia in the UK this month. The sign also includes one of Lennon's doodle self-portraits, which he drew in his double bed at the time. Fans may remember the placard as being positioned on the window above the couple while they were in bed in the famous suite of the Queen Elizabeth Hotel between May 26th and June 2nd that year.
