An extraordinarily rare and personal item--tucked away with a well-loved carte-de-visite photograph in a worn leather wallet is a braided lock of hair, gently tied off before snipping, and lovingly preserved as a record of this young child's first haircut, likely. I've actually never come across another example of a black child's preserved hair for sale.
