Marina Oswald Porter, A wedding ring belonging to Lee Harvey Oswald, the man behind the 1963 assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy, is one of 290 items of Kennedy memorabilia being auctioned off in Boston this week.

The gold band has several stamps on the inside, including a small star with a tiny hammer and sickle at its centre that points to the ring’s Soviet provenance. (RR Auction)

The ring is one of the more curious items in the auction, which is being organized by the New Hampshire auction house RR Auction, with live bidding beginning at noon ET Thursday at the Omni Parker House hotel in Boston.

Oswald bought the gold band in 1961 in Minsk, Belarus, which was part of the Soviet Union at the time, for his Russian wife Marina Prusakova. Oswald had defected to the Soviet Union earlier that year but returned to the U.S. with his new wife in 1962 and settled in Dallas.
