In 1959, Francis and Mary Crane purchased human remains representing a minimum of one individual from Kohlberg's Antiques and Indian Arts, in Denver, CO. In 1972, the human remains were donated by Mr. and Mrs. Crane and accessioned into the collections (AC.4224 (CUI 21)). The Start Printed Page 9601remains include a scalp lock with black hair, approximately 16 inches long, and one quarter of an inch wide. The upper end of the scalp lock is covered with sinew, yellow dyed deerskin, and tufts of red feather. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present.

In 1956, Francis and Mary Crane purchased human remains representing a minimum of one individual from Kohlberg's Antiques and Indian Arts. The remains were reportedly a part of the George A. Cuneo Collection of Southwestern and Plains Indian objects collected in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In 1983, the human remains were donated by Mr. and Mrs. Crane and accessioned into the collections (AC.35D (CUI 23)). The remains include seven inches of black and grey hair and scalp with traces of red pigment and a row of perforations along one edge of it. No known individual was identified.
