A UNIQUE collection of rock memorabilia has been put up for sale for charity.
The auction of items belonging to Freddie Mercury and Queen have been gathered over 33 years by dedicated fan Basge Asselbergs.
Items on sale will include a 1975 US-awarded gold disc for Bohemian Rhapsody. Also a 1970 Sunburst acoustic guitar, the only one known
to have been signed by all of the band.
The auction is being run by Eton-based Cooper Owen which specialises in music and film memorabilia.
Director Louise Cooper said: “Freddie Mercury items are very exclusive and the auction has attracted a lot of interest. It is hard to say how much particular items will sell for but we are expecting some keen prices.”
