JAMES R. LEAVELLE
The detective handcuffed to Lee Harvey Oswald when he was shot by Jack Ruby signs a philatelic envelope honoring the American Flag.
Philatelic Envelope signed: "James R Leavelle/Dallas Police Dept/I was handcuffed to/Lee H. Oswald", 6½x3¾. First Day Cover honoring the American Flag, 4-cent stamp affixed, postmarked Washington, D.C., December 17, 1981, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Dallas homicide detective James R. Leavelle (1920-2019) was the man in the white suit and white hat with the bewildered look as Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald in the Dallas police station on November 24, 1963. Moments before, Leavelle had joked to Oswald that he hoped anyone attempting to shoot him was as good a shot as Oswald himself. Leavelle had been present at a previous infamous event in US history. He was aboard the USS Whitney in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Leavelle has always believed that Oswald, acting alone, assassinated the President Kennedy.Fine condition.
