The winning bid for "A Day in the Life" came from an American who asked that his or her name not be made public, the article said.

According to CNN, "A total of three bidders weighed in for the manuscript, taking over six minutes until the bidding ended. The double-sided single sheet of paper written in Lennon’s hand includes cross-outs and corrections, and chronicles the evolution of one of the most famous musical masterpieces by the Beatles."
