"Coyote tooth dentures"

"Coyote tooth dentures on display at Eastern California Museum. These human dentures were made by melting celluloid toothbrush handles. So the story goes, in the early 1900′s a man who lost his teeth used shaped the melted toothbrushes to his gums, and then pressed the teeth of dead coyote into them."
