Bob Dylan accidentally left the guitar on a private plane that was being flown by Vic Quinto in the 1960s, and it has been in the possession of Quinto’s family ever since. Quinto’s daughter, Dawn Paterson, asserts that Dylan’s management company never responded to her father’s questions of what to do with the guitar.

After confirming the authenticity of the guitar on the PBS show “History Detectives” last year, Paterson ended a legal dispute with Dylan earlier this year which allowed her to sell the guitar and the lyric sheets that were found in the case. The five handwritten and typed sheets include fragments of lyrics that would later feature in songs including “Absolutely Sweet Marie” and “In the Darkness of Your Room”. The lyric sheets are expected to sell for $3,000 to $5,0000.

Further information on the sale is available at Christie’s website
