eBay Auctions JFK Sniper Texas School Book Depository Window … What about the Grassy Knoll?


Does eBay have any shame? Do we for actually entering bids on such items? The JFK_asswindow of the Texas School Book Depository building  that Lee Harvey Oswald shot John F. Kennedy was on auction at eBay by Caruth Byrd. However, it appears the sale has fallen through on a phony bid.

The window was up for auction Friday on eBay with a starting price of $100,000, and bidding quickly rose to seven figures. But 32 bids were either retracted by the bidders- normally because a wrong price had been entered, including one for $17 million – or canceled by the seller because a bidder didn’t meet qualifications.

Then, it turned out that the winning bidder “didn’t have the cash,” said Fred McLane, a business representative for owner Caruth Byrd. “This guy slipped into the bidding in the last minute,” he told The Dallas Morning News. (AP)


You will never guess who placed the last minute phony bid at the last minute came from? Those who placed qualified bids will be asked if they still wish to purchase the window.

The winning bidder for the window was from the Netherlands and entered his bid 22 seconds before the auction ended, not allowing time for a check of his qualifications.

There is no truth to the rumor that eBay will next be selling grass cut from the Grassy knoll on November 22, 1963.
