I received my daily email update from ebay today featuring all the newly listed vintage Odd Fellows items. It contained the above ceremonial coffin recently pulled out of an old building. While the ghostly face inside this particular find is not real, it’s often genuine human remains left behind when local Odd Fellows chapters close their doors.

Here’s what the seller has to say about the piece:

For Sale: an early odd fellows coffin. Just removed it from an old building. I didn’t clean it up. The head inside is from shoulders to head. Not full body. Not sure what the material is that it’s made from. It’s hard like ceramic not paper mache.
