A letter John Lennon wrote to the Queen explaining why he was returning his MBE was found tucked in a record sleeve from a £10 car boot haul.
The anonymous owner took the document to a valuation day at The Beatles Story in Liverpool on Wednesday - and discovered it was worth about £60,000.
One expert believes the text is a draft of the letter Lennon sent in 1969, which remains in the Royal archives.
He returned the MBE in protest at Britain's involvement in a civil war.
