One of the most interesting Christmas presents I got this year was an original, 1964 copy of Life magazine, with the famous Oswald picture on the front.
This picture of Oswald, shown holding the two weapons was reportedly found in the garage of Ruth Paine (where Marina and their two daughters lived). This photograph would become Warren Commission exhibit 133A.
