John Lennon’s molar was sold for over $31,000!
Here is some weird dental news from your Morrisville NC dentist:
John Lennon’s Molar was sold for over $31,000!
The tooth fairy must have been feeling pretty generous last week because John Lennon’s molar was sold at an England auction for $31,200! The tooth was given to Lennon’s former housekeeper, Dot Jarlett, between 1964 and 1968. Lennon joked that Dot should keep the tooth to give to her daughter, who was a big Beatles fan.
The tooth cannot be DNA tested, but the owner of the auction house does not doubt the authenticity since the tooth came directly from Jarlett.
A dentist in Canada was the winning bidder, which was expected to sell for around $16,000 but went for almost double that!
