News bulletins of JFK assassination to be auctioned
March 18, 1997
NEW YORK (CNN) -- A complete Associated Press teletype report of President John F. Kennedy's assassination were to be auctioned Wednesday.
The 7-foot by 8 1/4-inch teletype dating from November 22, 1963, documents the chronology of the assassination, from the first report of the shooting until the President was pronounced dead.
Thirty-nine AP newswire photos of events following the assassination will also be auctioned. The collection includes images of the Kennedy funeral procession, John Kennedy Jr. saluting at his father's funeral, and the First Lady in a blood-stained suit.
The teletype and wire photos were expected to fetch at least $2,500, according to Sal Alberti, a spokesman for R.M. Smythe & Co. Inc., the auction house handling the deal.
The report is still in one continuous roll in good condition, according to Alberti. The photos and teletype belonged to an upstate New York man before Smythe acquired them.
