Goldin Auctions is very happy to fill the needs of even the most demanding JFK assassination aficionado. You know, the guy or gal who sits around thinking, 'You know what would really make my fireplace mantle shrine to the assassination of the 35th president? A bullet fired from the gun that probably killed the guy who probably killed him.'" 

This is that guy's and/or ghoul's lucky day. Goldin has a whole pile of stuff commemorating the most infamous crime in Dallas history, all of which can be had, should you be willing to shell out enough cash, in an auction that ends January 30.

There's that bullet fired from Jack Ruby's gun, though not pried from Lee Harvey Oswald's guts. Goldin Auctions founder Ken Goldin says it was fired from the gun by the National Historical Mint, one of those companies that used to hawk reproduction and commemorative coins on late night TV (current price: $1,400):

"People ask, 'Well, why would somebody want this?' Well, it's part of American history and it's very significant. It's also important to remember that, only 50 years ago, the president rode through an American city in an open limousine. The government allowed this to happen and these are reminders of what happened," Goldin says.
