A Southern California auction house is selling a rather macabre piece of American history - Lee Harvey Oswald's coffin. Nate D. Sanders Auctions of Santa Monica is auctioning the coffin the presidential assassin was buried in.

It was exhumed in 1981 in an attempt to end conspiracy theories about the John F. Kennedy killer.

The auction house believes it could fetch $100,000
