CASH ITEMS UP FOR AUCTION

The Associated Press reports that the auction house Sotheby's will be the site of a major sale of Johnny and June Carter Cash memorabilia within the next few months. Items up for auction include Johnny's guitars, banjos, handwritten lyrics, photographs, vintage black leather clothing, stage costumes, GRAMMY Awards, antiques, crystal and other furnishings. The collection is valued at about $1.5-million. Among the items is a guitar designed by Cash, which is estimated to be worth $15,000 and a notebook filled with his handwritten lyrics ? thought to be worth around $6,000. Apparently, the auction is something Johnny was planning in the months between his wife's death and his own. A couple of the Cash children are expected to be at the New York Sotheby's in September to promote the auction.
