George Washington, the first president of the United States, has a surprising item up for sale – a lock of his famous white hair. This lock of hair has been preserved for centuries and is now on the open market for $45,000.
The lock of hair is carefully tied up in an oval shape and enclosed in a glass case, which is adorned with pearls. On the back of the case, there is an engraving with Washington’s initials, ‘GW’.
The hairlock was originally given to the Derby family, who were close friends of George and Martha Washington. It remained in the Derby family for generations, passed down from son to son.
Now, the lock of hair is being sold through Moments In Time, a collector and seller of historical artefacts. Along with the hair, a letter dated August 15, 1873, is included. This letter is correspondence between the Derbys and another collector, discussing the locks of hair.
It is worth noting that unlike many of his contemporaries, George Washington did not wear a wig. Instead, he powdered his own hairdo, making this lock of hair even more unique and historically significant.
The buyer of this piece of history will need a substantial amount of money, as the price tag is $45,000. But for those who appreciate presidential memorabilia, this is a rare opportunity to own a personal item belonging to one of the founding fathers of the United States.
