Kurt Cobain Rarely ever have their full name signed on anything, which is why a signed home insurance policy is a very rare, but macabre auction item. The folks at Goldin Auctions are negotiating the sale of this very rare document with the full signature of the late Nirvana leader – Kurt D. Cobain. He usually signed his name just Kurt. The letter from the insurance company Chase Bank is dated 74 days before the guitarist was found dead in his Seattle home. Yes, the policy was for that house … where Kurt committed suicide on April 8, 1994. Kurt owned this house for just a few months before his untimely death. As rock historians know, this is where he traveled shortly after fleeing rehab in California to begin a drug frenzy that ended with Kurt. suicide by a 20 caliber shotgun. The auction lot – currently held by Inscriptagraphs Memorabilia and should recover more than $ 100,000 – also includes original photos of what the house looked like before parts of the house were set on fire. We are told that the souvenir company plans to donate a portion of its profits to a suicide prevention organization.
Goldin Auctions describes this auction as “incredibly rare”… and it comes on the heels of last month’s record breaking item. Kurt set a Guinness World Record for the most expensive guitar sold at auction when his 1959 Martin D-18E cost $ 6,010,000.
