Sex Pistols – Sid Vicious Owned & Worn Boot Straps With Full Authentication
An extraordinary punk collectible–two studded leather boot straps owned and worn by Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols, with full documentation. (these are an unmatched pair and were worn by Sid, one each, on his boots.)
These were offered as part of a lot of Sid’s possessions by Vicious’ mother, Anne Beverley, at a sale in June 1988, then sold by the original purchaser at Butterfield & Butterfield’s Auctioneers in March 1993. We subsequently acquired the entire lot, and offer here the boot straps only (we are not selling the other items.) Included (and illustrated below) are color copies of a letter of authenticity from Sid’s mother, Anne Bevereley, the original 1993 sales receipt from Bonhams & Butterfield’s, and the relevant page from the Butterfield’s auction catalog (we are keeping the originals.)
The boot straps are in used but overall excellent condition, with minor signs of wear. This is a rare opportunity to obtain a personal item belonging to Sid Vicious, with the ultimate authentication, from his mother.
