Elvis Presley's Model Teeth Up For Grabs
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
