190 years after Thomas Jefferson died, a lock of his hair sold at a Texas auction for nearly $6,875. Heritage Auctions in Dallas said the sale involved 14 strands of Jefferson’s hair that were saved by his doctor at the time of his death in 1826. Though the buyer wished to remain anonymous, Heritage said the seller was a collector who purchased the hair in the early 1980s. The documentation including a letter confirms the authenticity of the hair and confirming the sample is part of a limited number of hair samples from Jefferson known to exist. –Jim L.
