Oswald Wedding Ring To Be Sold at Auction 10/24/13
DALLAS - The gold wedding band of accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald
set to go up for auction, along with almost 300 items tied to the life and death
of President John F. Kennedy.
RR Auction is offering the items Thursday in Boston. With this year marking
the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's assassination in downtown Dallas on Nov. 22,
1963, the New Hampshire-based auction house has gathered items ranging from
Kennedy's rosary beads to Oswald's U.S. Marine Corps rifle score book.
An auction house official says the ring could go for $100,000 or more.
Oswald's widow, Marina Oswald Porter, is offering the ring. After the
assassination it was turned over to the Secret Service and then spent decades in
the files of a Fort Worth lawyer before being returned to her.
