    Lord Horatio Nelson's Hair. This lot features three strands of actual hair from the head of Lord Nelson. The hair is protected and housed in a small plastic pocket that is attached to a backing sheet with scanned images of the original envelope the hair was housed in, a letter from Horatia Nelson about the transmission of the hair locks, and a small portrait of Lord Nelson himself. This impressive presentation is accompanied by a letter of Authenticity of John Reznikoff, President of University Archives. Horatio Nelson is one of the most famous naval commanders in world history, and is certainly the greatest naval hero in the United Kingdom's illustrious maritime history. Horatio Nelson can now be a part of your private collection with this lot.
