John F. Kennedy Leather Swatch limousine assassination

25 Feb

Original swatch of the dark blue bloodstained seat leather from the limousine Kennedy was riding in at the time of his assassination, measuring approximately .5 x .25, double-suede-matted with an image and description to an overall size of 11 x 14. In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity from University Archives and a packet of information regarding provenance. After Kennedy’s assassination, the presidential limousine was returned to the White House where it was under the care of F. Vaughn Ferguson. The bloodstained leather upholstery of the rear seat was removed—light blue from the main body of the bench-style seat, and dark blue from the border area—and the car sent to a Cincinnati firm for refitting and a security upgrade. Ferguson was able to retain the removed leather sections and eventually sold them to collector Raleigh DeGeer Amyx. RR Auction COA.
