Model of Elvis Presley's teeth to be auctioned off

A crown made for the King will also go under the hammer

Model of Elvis Presley's teeth to be auctioned off
A model of Elvis Presley's teeth made by his former dentist will be auctioned off this month.

ABC News reports that both the model and a crown made for him by Henry J. Weiss will go under the hammer courtesy of Omega Auctions in Stockport on February 25.

It is thought that Weiss made the porcelain crown for the legendary singer in 1971, when Presley cracked his tooth on a microphone during a gig at Las Vegas's International Hotel. The model, which has been dubbed the 'King's Crown', is expected to fetch nearly £10,000 when it goes on the auction block.

In 2010, a collection of medical implements which were allegedly used during Presley's autopsy were put up for auction.

Forceps, aneurysm hooks and even a toe tag for identifying Presley's corpse in the morgue were all set to go under the hammer, but were removed when the legitimacy of the collection was brought into question after another employee at the home suggested the equipment was sterilised and used again in other autopsies.
