    "Wizard of Oz" - Cowardly Lion Costume Lock "The Wizard Of Oz" screen featured costume artifact. Offered here is a large lock of the original Lion's costume worn by Burt Lahr throughout the epic film "The Wizard Of Oz." This extremely rare lock is one of only three removed during a museum quality restoration of the costume by its famous owner. The costume, which is valued at over one million dollars, resides in the permanent collection of the world's leading motion picture and television collector in Beverly Hills, CA. Of the three locks known to have been removed during the restoration, one was retained by the owner of the costume, one was sold by the owner at Christie's auction house several years ago for thousands of dollars, and the final lock was a gift to our consignor for the many years of friendship the two have shared. The hair itself is framed in a unique, hand-made bamboo display with a portrait of the lion's costume. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own an actual piece of a "Wizard Of Oz" costume. Included is a detailed letter of authenticity. Cataloged and guaranteed by Startifacts.
