BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Auctioneers planned to sell off a mixture of macabre reminders of John F. Kennedy's assassination and other items that bring to mind the history of "Camelot."

RR Auction hosted a preview of the Oct. 24 auction at the Boston Omni Parker House Thursday that included everything from accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald's wedding band to Jacqueline Kennedy's night gowns.

The starting bid for the sixth-floor window of the Texas School Book Depository building, where Oswald is said to have fired the fatal shots, carried a starting bid of $25,000.

Other items included an iconic image of John Jr. playing under his father's desk inside the Oval Office and the president's Rosary beads.
