You may soon be able to own a very odd piece of history. One of John Lennon TMs teeth is expected to go up for auction for $16,000.
According to Rolling Stone Music, the late Beatle gave the tooth to his housekeeper, Dot Jarlett, at his Kenwood mansion in Surrey, England in the late Sixties. He had originally told her to dispose of the tooth, but upon learning that her daughter was a Beatles fan, told her to give it to her as a souvenir.
"He was in the kitchen and he had this tooth which he had wrapped in a piece of paper, said Dot's son Barry Jarlett, according to BBC News. "It is something that we felt was very personal and my mum actually gave it to my sister who has kept it safe, he said.
According to the Church of the Beatles, the most expensive piece of Beatles memorabilia ever put up for sale appeared at an exhibit in the UK. The highlight of The $11m Dollar Picture Show is a printer TMs proof of the famous Beatles banned butcher cover from John Lennon TMs personal collection.
The tooth will go up for auction next month.
