BOSTON (AP) - The beaded jacket Prince wore in the 1986 film “Under the Cherry Moon” and other items linked to the late musician are up for auction.

Boston-based RR Auction is handling the sales that wrap up Thursday. Other items are a black-and-white-striped bolero jacket designed for a 1993 Prince tour of Europe; a document he signed to play The Kid in “Purple Rain;” handwritten lyrics for “The Screams of Passion”; a custom Versace rhinestone cane; and a handwritten award acceptance speech.

The “Under the Cherry Moon” jacket is covered in shimmering beadwork and faux pearls, and features a bolero-style front with a cape back. It still has makeup on the collar because it is so delicate it has never been laundered.

Prince died in April at age 57.
