The sixth-floor window of the Texas School Book Depository, through which Lee Harvey Oswald shot and killed John F. Kennedy, was sold on Ebay yesterday for more than three million dollars.
The mystery buyer, listed as r.seydel and based in the Netherlands
according to his page on Ebay’s website, paid 3,001,501 dollars to
acquire the window, well past a starting bid for the piece of 100,000
The window was taken out of the depository weeks after Kennedy’s
assassination and held for more than two decades by Caruth Byrd’s
father Harold. When Caruth inherited the item after his father’s
death, he had it placed in a museum in Dallas commemorating the
assassination, where it has been for more than 10 years.
The grassy knoll was not included in the sale.
