Abraham Lincoln (February 12, 1809 – April 15, 1865), 16th President of the United States and First Lady Mary Todd Lincoln (December 13, 1818 - July 16, 1882), matted display, featuring several strands of the President and Mrs. Lincoln's hair actual authentic hair!  Hair stands are housed in a small magnified plastic case and are double matted along with contemporary reproductions of vintage albumen images of the Lincolns, as well as a descriptive caption, for an overall size of 11" x 14".

Lincoln is among the most influential and important of all American Presidents, having led the nation through the Civil War and the abolition of slavery.

The hair was originally presented to Caroline Wright, wife of Indiana governor Joseph Wright, following Lincoln's 1865 inauguration, as the Wrights were close friends of the Lincolns.

Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Cary J. Delery, stating the hair was in the possession of the Wright family until 1992, when it was sold at Christie’s. The hair was sold again by Christie’s in 2002, as part of the Forbes Collection. 

Beautiful matted felt display in fine condition. (COA shows the piece within a frame, however this offering is for the matted display only, not framed.)

Satisfaction 100% Guaranteed
