Kennedy/Oswald Auction October 24th, 2013 in Boston

RR Auction is assembling an unprecedented collection of premier John F. Kennedy-related material in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the president’s passing. The live auction sale is set to take place on October 24, 2013, fittingly destined for Boston, Massachusetts.

Amongst the hundred or so marquee lots to be auctioned are: Lee Harvey Oswald’s wedding ring direct from the family, the only item ever returned by the government to Marina Oswald; a 1963 Lincoln Continental convertible—the last car the president rode in and safely exited in Fort Worth that fateful morning of November 22, 1963; the controversial 6th Floor Window from the Texas Book Depository; and Kennedy’s rosary originating from the Dave Powers collection—one of the most personally profound effects the beloved Catholic president ever possessed.

There’s still time to consign your stellar JFK memorabilia—both signed material and historical artifacts—contact us today to be part of this special event!

For a free consignment appraisal, email Bob Eaton at Bob.Eaton@RRAuction.com or call (603) 732-4280.
