Description



Claim a small piece of one the greatest presidents in U.S. history, with this strand of Abraham Lincoln's hair in a framed display. This professionally mounted ensemble piece makes a stately presentation, with Lincoln's hair clipping centered between two photographs. Lincoln is seen at left with General John A. McClellan and Major Alan Pinkerton, in a shot taken at a military camp in Sharpsburg, Maryland on 10/3/1862; and the photo on the right is cropped from an image reportedly taken on 2/5/1865. Directly below the hair strand is an engraved plate indicating this piece is limited edition numbered "199/300". An engraved plate below the military camp photo commemorates Lincoln's historic "Gettysburg Address" and below the portrait photo is an engraved plate with Lincoln's term of presidential service from "1861-1865". This dignified display presents in excellent condition overall, with just minor wear on the edge of the frame. Accompanying is a COA from John Reznikoff, who is cited as having the largest collection of celebrity hair in the world and is a recognized expert in the collecting hobby.
