The lot is Lee Harvey Oswald's only dress suit

RR Auction explains: "Apparently, his only dress clothes, Lee brought this suit along when he defected to the Soviet Union in October 1959 and it appears in at least three photographs dating from that period���including one taken on his wedding day on April 30, 1961.

"The suit is described briefly in the Warren Commission report: 'Oswald owned one suit, of Russian make and purchase, poor fitting and of heavy fabric which, despite its unsuitability for the comates of Texas and Louisiana and his obvious discomfort, he wore on the few occasions that required dress.'"

Material relating to Oswald is highly sought after. His wedding ring sold for $108,000 at RR Auction in 2013.

We have this photograph for sale, signed by JFK and his family.

A contract signed by Marilyn Monroe is also on offer, with bidding at $4,506.

It dates to 1952 and relates to the star's pay from 20th Century Fox.
