FBI seizes Lennon fingerprint card from auction house

A set of John Lennon’s fingerprints has been seized by the FBI from a New York memorabilia dealer.

Dealer Peter Siegel told the BBC the card was to be auctioned at a $100,000 (£62,621) minimum bid.

The prints were taken at a New York police station in 1976 when Lennon applied for permanent US residence.

An FBI official told the BBC the bureau believed the card was government property and was investigating how it landed in private hands.
