BOSTON (AP) - The dapper double-breasted jacket that Ringo Starr wore in the 1965 Beatles movie “Help!” is going on the auction block.

Boston-based RR Auctions says online bidding for the black woolen jacket featured in the Beatles’ second film will run July 16 through July 23.

The jacket is among nearly 500 items for sale in a “Marvels of Modern Music” auction. Also going up for auction are a 1971 letter that Doors frontman Jim Morrison wrote from Paris to a couple in Beverly Hills, California, and a 1980 custom-designed Hamer electric guitar used by Johnny Ramone.
