John Lennon items that were stolen from Yoko Ono in 2006 have been recovered.

The Associated Press reports that one hundred pieces that were taken from the New York estate of John Lennon were found in Berlin, Germany.

The personal effects include three diaries, a hand-written music score, a cigarette case, and two pairs of Lennon's famous circular glasses.

Since his murder in 1980, Lennon's possessions have been among the most coveted and expensive in rock history. In 2015, the long-lost acoustic Gibson J-160E guitar used on the Beatles' Please Please Me and With the Beatles, sold for $2.41 million.

Side Notes:

In past years, a tooth of John Lennon's sold for $31,000.

Last year, a lock of his hair sold $35,000.

A 58-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of fraud and handling stolen goods.
