All you sick and twisted John Lennon fans be ready for some serious bidding. One of Lennon’s teeth, known as a macabre “souvenir”, is going up on the auction block and is expected to sell for at LEAST $16,000.
Apparently this molar was given to Lennon’s housekeeper Dot Jarlet back in the late 1960’s and this old bat saved the tooth!
Jarlett’s son, Barry, says, “He was in the kitchen and he had this tooth which he had wrapped in a piece of paper.
“He said, ‘Dot, will you dispose of this’ and then he said, ‘Or, as your daughter’s a Beatles fan, you can give to her as a souvenir’. It is something that we felt was very personal and my mum actually gave it to my sister, who has kept it safe.”
The auction is going to go down in Stockport, England on November 5th put on by Omega Auctions. A rep for the auction company said, “This is the most wonderful and weird item that we have ever had for sale. It is a truly unique item and it is really difficult to put a value on it. We are expecting it to achieve at least £10,000 but it is not unknown for items as rare as this to reach six figures.”
Hm. I wonder if she brushed the toof on the regular??? This thing is like a freakin’ FOSSIL!
