Winston Churchill’s Teeth Fetch $26.359 At Auction




On 29 July 2010 the Newspaper “Toronto Star” wrote this amusing article:

  • “LONDON—A partial set of dentures used by former British leader Winston Churchill — described as the teeth that saved the world — sold at auction Thursday for £15,200 ($26,359).
  • The upper dentures, one of several sets specially made for the wartime prime minister, were used to maintain his distinctively slurred speaking style. They were bought by a British collector of Churchill memorabilia at an auction in England at three times the estimated price.
  • The set of dentures were unique because they were designed to be loose-fitting so that Churchill could preserve the diction famous from World War II-era radio broadcasts, experts said.”
