View the Auction Page.
JUNE 27, 2005, SEAFORD, NY -- A piece from one of the most infamous and tragic events in American history has been auctioned off to Internet casino GoldenPalace.com for $32,664.47. The white picket fence from the famous grassy knoll where the supposed second shooter assassinated President John F. Kennedy was sold through Lelands.com, an auction site specializing in sports and Americana memorabilia.
This sectioned white picket fence from Dealey Plaza has remained virtually untouched for 36 years since the fateful day that saw one of America's most beloved Presidents gunned down. Looming over the infamous grassy knoll, it has stood as a reminder of the incident as well as the conspiracy it spawned.
"For all that time, this fence stood as a reminder of one of the darkest days in history," explains Josh Evans, Founder of Lelands.com. "While it seems only logical that such a landmark would have been transported to the Smithsonian, perhaps its power to spark debate about the official government explanation of the assassination rendered it unfit for such commemoration. Rather, the powers that be -- still holding to the Warren Report's sole gunman conclusion -- chose to let the fence simply rot away."
The fence has been marked with an abundance of graffiti over the years with such phrases as "RIP, JFK", "Oswald Was Framed", and "Blame the Government".
"This item is a true piece of Americana," said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. "The assassination of JFK was one of the most significant events in American history. This fence will serve as a reminder of that tragic day and the conspiracy that continues to baffle people today."
GoldenPalace.com added the white picket fence to their impressive collection of oddities which includes such unique items as the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Britney Spears' Pregnancy Test, Marilyn Monroe's personal address book, and Pope Benedict XVI's previously-owned VW Golf; all of which have garnered extensive worldwide media attention for the casino.
