What do you think John Lennon’s molar tooth sold for at auction this past November? Would you believe $31,000! The decayed tooth was bought by Michael Zuk, a dentist from Alberta, Canada. He is a collector of animal teeth and celebrity memorabilia. The dentist plans to have the tooth mounted and placed on display in his office. He said he would also lend the tooth to dentists or dental schools or anyone who would like to display it.
John Lennon gave the tooth to his housekeeper who lived in England at the time the tooth was extracted in the mid 1960’s. She then moved to Canada and has kept the tooth ever since. She provided an affidavit confirming that the tooth was authentic. Even so, I doubt I would want to display it!
