    Description

    Abraham Lincoln: Lock of Lincoln's Hair. Six strands of hair removed by surgeons to access the fatal wound. It was given by Mrs. Lincoln to Dr. Charles Taft, who attended the president on his deathbed. Taft willed his collection of mementos to his son, Charles C. Taft, who sold the hair lock with full documentation in 1908. Its provenance has been continuously documented since. These hairs come with a certificate of authenticity from John Reznikoff of University Archives. Attractively matted with image of Lincoln. Very fine.
