Lennon Tooth Auctioned For 32k

When reports first emerged a couple of weeks ago (story) that a tooth belonging to John Lennon was headed for auction we considered the estimated sale value of $16,000 for the unusual artifact a bit low.  That proved correct Saturday (11/5) when a Canadian dentist submitted a winning bid of nearly $32,000.  Michael Zuk said that as soon as he got wind that a tooth that once resided in the mouth of Lennon was going up for sale he knew he '...had to have it.'
Zuk went on to tell the BBC that he made the purchase knowing that many would consider it 'gross'.  The tooth was reportedly given by Lennon to to his housekeeper as a memento for her Beatles fan daughter shortly after John returned from a dentist's office to have it extracted.
