dentures for sale

anybody want them?

and they are gold

Here’s the deal, according to Luxist: They are used. Belonged to Winston Churchill. They come with a copy of a photograph of Sir Winston Churchill being escorted to his car by Wallace Stewart Ross, his last dentist and there is a note from Churchill’s private secretary addressed to Mr Stewart Ross: “Lady Churchill has asked me to send you this photograph which Sir Winston has signed for you.”

Of Churchill’s four sets (he’s  buried with one set), a second set is held by the Royal College of Surgeons in London. The third set of dentures (never worn), recently sold at auction for £17,480.

The set, pictured here, was worn until a clasp broke. Paul Fraser Collectibles reports that the upper dentures were deliberately designed to be loose-fitting so that Churchill could keep the recognizable lisp that people were accustomed to hearing during his radio broadcast. Paul Fraser Collectibles is accepting offers around the £40,000 mark.

If you have to have these, contact Fraser…
