Kennedy, John F. [Kennedy Assassination] A Swatch of Leather from the Limousine in Which President John F. Kennedy Was Assassinated. Raleigh Degeer Amyx Collection. Obtained from the limousine by F. Vaughn Ferguson soon after Kennedy’s assassination. Ferguson was in charge of the car as liaison officer between the Ford Motor Company and the White House. He obtained the discarded leather following the FBI’s search of the car for bullet fragments and other evidence, after which the vehicle was sent to Cincinnati for upgraded security and bullet-proofing by Hess & Eisenhardt. Two three-inch squares of the leather from the Degeer Amyx Colleciton were sold at auction in 2004. The snippet offered here was cut from that section and is offered with a COA from John Reznikoff of University Archives, a copy of a letter of provenance from Ferguson to Amyx, and a packet of photocopied clippings and further documentation.
