Half a century after the heyday of Camelot, a treasure trove of John F. Kennedy personal items now belongs to a bevy of JFK fanatics.
At the center of the cache: Kennedy's Air Force One bomber jacket, which sold at auction Sunday for $629,000.
The stash also includes a May 29, 1963, birthday card for Kennedy signed by his toddler son, John Jr., as well as a marked-up itinerary for his final presidential trip, a visit to Dallas in November 1963.FULL STORY
Well, all right.
Perverse. And what pray tell will they "do" with these items? Must be nice to have money like that to waste.
Just after President Kennedy's assassination my late mother, Mary Haydn, painted one of the greatest primitive works of art the world has never known (yet). This isn't a sales pitch, it's achance to back bringing this great work of art out of hiding. Please have a look at: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jonnyhaydn/jfk-last-wave-primitive-artwork-created-in-novembe to see it. There are only two weeks left for backers, small or large to support the effort for it as a limited edition giclee print. Thanks for reading.
