Paul McCartney's Childhood Door Sells For Over $7,000

The front door from Sir Paul McCartney's childhood home has sold at auction for nearly $8,000.

The door, taken off the 20 Forthlin Road, Allerton, Liverpool home, went for the top estimate of $7,687.47. The auction took place at Dominic Winter Auctioneers in Cirencester, Gloucestershire.

"It came down to three people bidding against each other and the winner was a phone bidder from Lancashire. We're very happy with the result," auctioneer Chris Albury told NME of the sale. "It is an odd thing to offer and a curious thing to put a value on - 5,000 is a serious price."

McCartney lived in the home from 1955-1964 and learned to play guitar, piano, drums and the trumpet while living there, reports the Scotsman. The house was repossessed by the National Trust in 1995.
