Original tin photo of post mortem child with a lock of her hair hidden behind the image in the case. There was also a piece of an 1871 Chicago newspaper with the hair wrapped in it. The case is complete but needs a coat of beeswax to clean it up. Clasp is intact and works fine. Good original hinge on the case halves. This is a nice item I procured at an estate sale in Barry County, Michigan a number of years ago. The image is clean and crisp in detail with good contrast.
