November 05, 2011|By the CNN Wire Staff

The winning bid for John Lennon’s tooth came in at $31,200, according to auction results posted online.The tooth fairy’s trash became another man’s treasure Saturday when a discolored molar that once belonged to John Lennon was put up for auction.

Michael Zuk, a Canadian dentist, is claiming responsibility for the winning bid. Omega Auction House, which sold the tooth, did not immediately respond to requests for comment Saturday.

Lennon gave the tooth to Dorothy “Dot” Jarlett when she worked as his housekeeper at his Kenwood home in Weybridge, Surrey, according to her son, Barry. Jarlett, who was employed between 1964 and 1968, developed a warm relationship with Lennon, her son said.
