Lee Harvey Oswald government issue Marine Corp raincoat

24 Feb

Oswald’s personally-owned and -worn long double-breasted raincoat issued by the United States Marine Corps, dark green, size 38R, stenciled inside the collar area, “L. H. Oswald.” His name is also stenciled inside the belt, which is included. In fine condition. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from University Archives and notarized letter from Robert L. Oswald, in part: “Lee wore this coat during the period of time from his enlistment in 1956 until his discharge in September 1959. Before leaving for Europe in September 1959, Lee left this very coat with me in my Fort Worth home.” An outstanding piece with impeccable provenance, this is the only clothing officially issued to Oswald we have offered. RR Auction COA.
