    Hello everyone!!
    Last, but not least, is my 1910 mourning suit. I have a couple others, but they're not in as nice of condition as these I have posted here on CW, so, I won't be posting those. This one has a beautiful basket weave design on the cutaway frock coat and waistcoat buttons. This one is signed and dated what appears to be Feb. 12, 1910. The waistcoat has white grosgrain strips buttoned into the inside. I'm really not sure what the reason behind these are, except perhaps for embellishments.

    As you'll see in pic #1, I had a difficult time photographing this mourning suit without catching several light orbs around it. Though, not all want to believe these orbs are spirit orbs, but rather light reflecting from dust particles. I'm leaning more toward light reflecting from dust particles. However, it's more exciting to believe these are spirit orbs. But, I'll let you use your own imagination, regarding these orbs. I managed to get one pic without orbs, but I like the one with orbs better.

    Thank you all for stopping in for a look!!!

      In Ancient Hebrew History, when a loved one would pass away, those that mourned would put on a sackcloth, a course covering made of flax and hemp. They would wear these for several days.

      Wow -- neat -- and I think those are Spirit Orbs.

      Thanks Rose!! My wife says that these are spirit orbs as well. They only appear when I photograph my mourning suit and tuxedo collection. More so with the mourning suits. Thanks also for the love!!
