Description  

Two short strands of Lincoln’s hair, encapsulated in clear plastic, and affixed to an 8.5 x 11 certificate of authenticity from University Archives’ John Reznikoff. In fine condition. Accompanied by a flash drive containing extensive documentation regarding the hair, which was sold in 1914 in the sale of Major William H. Lambert's collection of Lincolniana at Anderson Galleries. Also on the drive are images of letters dating back to 1905, including those of Charles C. Taft, whose father, Dr. Charles S. Taft, attended to President Lincoln on his deathbed. The original full lock of hair had remained in the Taft family until it was sold to Lambert. RR Auction COA.
