The first coffin in which Lee Harvey Oswald was buried has been sold at auction for $87,468. Nate D Sanders auction house confirmed that the partially water-damaged pine coffin had been purchased by an unknown bidder, AFP reports. Oswald, who was accused of the assassination of president John F. Kennedy in 1963, was buried in the casket when he was himself shot two days later by nightclub owner Jack Ruby. He was exhumed in 1981 to disprove claims a look-alike had been buried in his place, before being buried in a second coffin. DS
