DALLAS (AP) -- Lee Harvey Oswald's gold wedding band has sold at auction for $118,000.

The ring that once belonged to the assassin of President John F. Kennedy was among almost 300 items linked to Kennedy's life and death that went up for auction Thursday in Boston.

Nov. 22 is the 50th anniversary of the 1963 assassination of Kennedy in Texas.

RR Auction said the ring sold to a buyer from Texas who wished to remain anonymous.

Oswald left the ring at home on the morning of the assassination. After being turned over to the Secret Service, it spent decades in the files of a Texas lawyer before being returned to his widow. She agreed to put it up for auction.
