Sir Winston Churchill's Dentures Up For Sale
There are four known sets of Churchill gold dentures. One set was buried with Churchill, a second set is held by the Royal College of Surgeons in London. The third set of dentures recently sold at auction for £17,480, however that set was a spare set that had never been worn by Sir Winston. The fourth set being sold here were worn by Sir Winston until a clasp broke and they were returned to the dental office. 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.
