Andrew Jackson Lock of Hair

12 Feb

Significant lock of Jackson’s hair, measuring approximately 3″ long, tied together and affixed with a period wax seal to a 6 x 3.25 personal notecard of Forest H. Sweet bearing a contemporaneously handwritten provenance note, in full: “Hair of General Andrew Jackson, a portion of lot 96 of the Personal Relics of President Andrew Jackson consigned and guaranteed genuine by Andrew Jackson the Fourth.” In fine condition. Accompanied by a photocopy of the auction listing referenced in the note, which was held on April 13–14, 1927, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This highly desirable lock of hair, potentially the biggest lock to hit the market in years, is complemented by ironclad familial provenance—direct from his great-grandson.

Absentee Bidding ends at 12 PM ET Wednesday Feb 18 – Live Bidding Begins at 1 PM ET Feb 19
