The jersey jersey worn by President John F. Kennedy while attending Harvard University was put up for a President’s Day auction run by Boston’s RR Auction.
The dark red jacket has a large H (Harvard) in front, and the name of the then student Kennedy is sewn into the collar. The jacket was given by Jacqueline Kennedy to CBS cameraman Herman Lang, who filmed an interview with her in 1964, a year after the assassination of John F. Kennedy in Dallas, and complained about the cold (interview took place outside the premises).
The jacket, bought for $ 85,000, was one of many auction items. A photo signed by President Abraham Lincoln with his son Ted went for $ 135,000. A lottery ticket autographed by President George Washington was bought for $ 26,000, and a handwritten letter from President Ronald Reagan to his daughter for $ 24,000. Official and personal documents were also put up for auction. signed by other American presidents, including John Adams, James Monroe, Andrew Jackson, and Ulysses Grant. Not without a completely “fresh” lot – a photograph of President Joe Biden, signed in golden ink.
