    John F. Kennedy: Archive of Assassination Teletypes. In the aftermath of the assassination in Dallas, newspapers and television stations across America reported all available details of the event on a continuous basis. Anchormen would read teletype reports as they came in. In addition, photographs sent over the wires would be pinned or mounted to a board and broadcast with voiceover commentary. This lot has eighteen such teletype pictures covering the assassination, its aftermath and the funeral. It also includes a three-page copy of the FBI "Briefing of Oswald" from November 23, 1963, six pages copied from the Warren Commission Report that deal with evidence linking Oswald to the crime and the Kennedy autopsy report, as well as ancillary material. The teletype photos were retrieved from a CBS affiliate station in Dayton, Ohio at the time by the consignor's father who worked there.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
