Which world leader’s dentures were auctioned off for $23,000 in 2010?
Winston Churchill remains legendary for his confident speeches during WW2. British citizens listened closely for updates and reassurances from his voice over the radio airwaves. Despite – or perhaps partly because of – his pronounced lisp, Churchill is recognized as one of the greatest orators of the 20th century, which might help explain why his partial dentures were sold for $23,000 at a 2010 auction.
Notably, Churchill’s dentures are only partial and were specifically designed to preserve his distinctive lisp. Churchill himself considered his dentures so important that when the technician who made them, Derek Cudlipp, was called up to fight in World War 2, Winston Churchill personally tore the orders up.
Answer: The correct answer is Winston Churchill
