Two JFK office flags, rocker sell for nearly $513K

Posted: Updated:

Two flags that were displayed by President John F. Kennedy in the Oval Office and one of his rocking chairs have sold at auction for nearly $513,000.

Dallas-based Heritage auction says the items from JFK's time in the White House were purchased Saturday night by an anonymous collector. The auction was held the day after the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination in Dallas.

Auction house officials say the flags, one a U.S. banner and the other with the presidential seal, were sold for $425,000, while the rocking chair went for $87,500. The same buyer purchased both historic items.

The collection was amassed by Dean William Rudoy, a psychologist from New Mexico.
