$20,100 now, I was thinking that it was an odd time to sell the originals along with the copyright before the 40th anniversary of Lennon's murder in December, but given the amounts they are going for perhaps not. It's certainly a different world to stock photography.

There's actually two main ones and several others from the same seller:

I suspect that there will be some massive bids in the last 10 seconds of these auctions.

So the last frame (completely blank piece of film) went for £2,517.84 and the Mark Chapman frame went for just shy of £29,000, it went up by £10,000 in the last few seconds.
 
More to come tonight:

Actually the winner left it a bit late- minus 48 seconds was the winning bid. Minus 5 seconds was sniped by him..

Would've been fun to watch though..

The blank piece of film bothered me slightly but I see I was mistaken, it's not blank, his flash failed to go off so there is a very faint image that they have recovered in Photoshop. It would have been quite a decent portrait by the looks of it.
