Prince Charles Toast Sold At Auction - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.
Auctions sometimes allow buyers to bid on unique and seemingly odd items. Recently, a leftover part of Price Charles’ breakfast toast from the morning he married Lady Diana sold for $360.00 to a British buyer. On July 29, 1981, Rosemarie Smith was visiting her daughter, who was a maid at Buckingham Palace. She reminisces by stating, “I was with her in the corridor and saw that Prince Charles had left some toast on the tray. I had been thinking about a keepsake from the wedding and saw the toast and thought to myself: Why not?” Smith had kept the piece of food for over 30 years.
Another strange item to be auctioned recently was John Lennon’s porcelain toilet. The lavatory part sold for nearly $15,000 at an auction in Liverpool. Lennon had initially given the piece to a builder, telling him to ‘to use it as a plant pot’.
If a celebrity toilet isn’t bizarre enough, how about Winston Churchill’s dentures? In 2010, the false teeth, designed specifically to preserve his lisp sold to an English collector for about $24,000.
