Couldn’t Snag a Lock of Abraham Lincoln’s Hair? Here Are Some Other Historical Items Up for Auction

A two-inch lock of President Abraham Lincoln’s hair and a telegram smeared with his blood recently sold for more than $81,000 at auction. The hair had been clipped from the man’s head one day after he was assassinated on April 14, 1865. 

We know you’re bummed that you missed out on this once-in-a-lifetime piece of history, so check out the other historical auction items that we still have available!

George Washington Carver’s Saliva – Best known for his contribution to agricultural science with the development of three hundred products that can be made from peanuts, you can own this special peanut specimen that was actually partially eaten by salivating Georgie himself. Yes, the saliva is still wet and juicy!

Paul Revere’s Larynx – Folk hero of the American revolution who called out “The British are coming!” on that mystical midnight ride, you can now own the famous larynx that made it all possible. We also have superb insight from the previous owner that if you blow through it, you can hear the man grunt!

Sojourner Truth’s Left Boob – The true symbol of women’s rights! Sojourner’s left boob is slightly bigger than the right (though we are still searching for the collector who has this historical item to ensure legitimacy of claim). This is the perfect gift for that special feminist in your life!

Benjamin Franklin’s Electrified Bone – It took a kite, a key, a storm, and a prayer to prove Benji’s hypothesis of lightning having an electrical discharge. Though many speculate whether this story is true or indulged, you can own the proof by owning the electrified bones of Benny’s right hand which held that very kite string! 

Eleanor Roosevelt’s Birthmark – Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; and you and your friends can discuss Eleanor’s birthmark which comes pre-framed, with a certificate of authenticity, so you can get it up on your living room wall immediately upon purchase!

Betsy Ross’s Menstrual Rag – In 1776, Betsy not only made the first U.S. flag, but she was also on the rag! In fact, when she ran out of red-dyed fabric, she had an easy fix. Now, you too can own a piece of the birth of America.

John Muir’s Beard – “John of the Mountains” can now be the “Beard on Your Mantel!” Muir was not only devoted to the preservation of the western forests, but he was also devoted to the preservation of his beard!

Sacagawea’s Placenta – Reliable information about the life of Sacagawea is limited, but you can rely on us to have her official placenta from when she gave birth to her son. Or maybe her daughter. Maybe it’s the same. It is unknown how babies are born, but this is definitely Sacagawea’s placenta.

Help preserve the history of America. Buy these for your collection today!
