Just days before the 60th anniversary of Kennedy’s death on Nov. 22, 1963 several items are now up for auction. Among the items being auctioned is a section of the wooden picket fence from the infamous “grassy knoll,” a location long believed by many, including witnesses that day, to have been the site of at least one gunshot fired at the presidential parade route, per TMZ.
