(Gibson) First, John Lennon's tooth went up for auction in a high-profile sale, and now it's Elvis Presley's turn.

According to ABC News, a one-of-a-kind a model of Elvis Presley's teeth together with a crown made for the star by the musician's former Memphis dentist, Henry J. Weiss, will be up for auction beginning February 25. The model which will be auctioned via Omega Auctions in Stockport, Greater Manchester is estimated to score a sky-high $15,000 or more.

Weiss, Presley's dentist until 1971, did all of the "Hound Dog" rocker's dental work, including the groundwork of a porcelain crown for his front tooth. As the story goes, Weiss was called upon in February of 1971 when Presley cracked his crown on a microphone while playing a gig at the International Hotel, now known as the Hilton Hotel, in Las Vegas. He affectionately called the crown the "King's Crown." more on this story
