Lee Harvey Oswald's Coffin

Name your price

Need just the right thing for the conspiracy theorist in your life? How about Lee Harvey Oswald's coffin? The alleged JFK assassin was buried in 1963 but exhumed and reinterred in a fresh casket in 1981. Now Los Angeles auction house Nate D. Sanders has placed the original on the block. Bidding closes on Dec. 16, and the reserve price had not been met at press time. Huh. That's what "they" want you to believe. Visit www.natedsanders.com/ItemInfo.asp?ItemID=31872.
