Oswald's Coffin for Sale

The coffin that Lee Harvey Oswald was buried in back in 1963 is up for sale at an auction house in California.
The pine coffin is partially water-damaged by the 18 years it spent in the ground before Oswald's body was exhumed in 1981 to lay to rest rumors that a lookalike Soviet agent was buried in his place.

The body -- confirmed as genuinely his -- was reburied in another casket, and the original is only now being offered for sale at auction.

Bids will be taken until December 18th. Link

Dean Booth of Dean's Comic Booth was challenged to create this animation to illustrate this story at J-Walk Blog.
