John F. Kennedy auction: Collection of memorabilia sells for £1.3 million

19 February 2013

Photographs, a pen and a leather bomber jacket belonging to John F. Kennedy has fetched £1.3 million. The items were auctioned by John McInnis Auctioneers in Amesbury, Massachusetts. The collection belonged to David Powers, the former President's assistant and close friend who died in 1998. A leather bomber jacket was sold to an anonymous bidder for £370,000, far more than its estimated value. John F. Kennedy was assassinated nearly 50 years ago in Dallas, Texas.
