The official and verified Instagram page of The Beatles icon John Lennon exposed special memorabilia of lithographic plates written by John Lennon.

In the caption of the picture, It is stated that this exclusive plate was written by John in February 1969 as a part of the ‘Bag One’ collection. The stone was printed by Curwen Studio in London, and also it’s signed and dated.
