Sir Paul McCartney's wax head left on train

Post by Baz on Wed Oct 22, 2008 4:12 am




A waxwork version of Sir Paul McCartney's head has been left on a train - and now 2,000 is being offered for its safe return.

The owner of the head, Joby Carter, left it on a London-to-Reading train last Thursday (October 16), reports BBC News.

Carter is offering the money as a reward for the head, which was expected to sell for between 5,000 and 10,000 at Carters Entertainment auctioneers before it went missing.

The head was made in the 1960s and had been on display at the Louis Tussauds museum in Great Yarmouth.

"The silly thing is since the appeal to find the head we've had more bids come in and the sell price is guaranteed to have gone up," Carter said. "But until it is found it is worthless."

Homeless man Anthony Silva has claimed a 2,000 reward after finding the waxwork head of Sir Paul McCartney in a bin at Reading train station.

The rendition of the former Beatles man's head was left on a train last Thursday (October 16) by Joby Carter, who had been transporting it to be auctioned.

Silva told the Daily Star that when he found the head in the bin he initially thought it was a Halloween mask but after realising what he had found claimed the 2,000 reward from Carter.

"It's just what I need and I hope my luck has changed for the better," Silva said.

Carter, meanwhile, said he hoped to make his 2,000 back and then some more when the head is auctioned. "I'll be gutted if it only goes for peanuts now," he said. "With the interest we've had I'm confident it may go for more than 10,000."
