Cast Iron Coffin PDF Print E-mail

The Fisk coffin shown here is a very rare item from the 1850’s and 1860’s. These coffins were advertized as “self-sealing” and “airtight” to protect the loved one’s remains. Recent inspection of remains of individuals buried in these cast iron coffins has shown those claims to be true!

Our coffin has never been used, and is therefore, in pristine condition.
