John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s famous “bed peace” sign, which was taped to the window above their bed during their 1969 “bed in” in Montreal, sold for a whopping $154,000 at a Christie’s auction on Nov. 15. Who knew the going rate for peace was so high?

Lennon and Ono stayed in their bed at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel for a whole week as a way to protest the Vietnam War. The hand-drawn poster, which was signed and dated by the couple, was obtained by a sound engineer who attended the protest. It was won at auction by an anonymous telephone bidder. No word on whether the winner is also hunting down the “Hair Peace” sign as a companion right this very moment.
