Now called the Sixth Floor Museum, the site is operated by the Dallas County Historical Foundation. The original rifle and a pistol that Oswald carried that day are now kept out of public view within the National Archives and Records Administration Building in College Park, Maryland.

  • The stamp in question will have been applied by the manufacturer of the box; the stamps "TEN ROLLING READERS" and "#15-M" will have been applied by the school book depository or perhaps by the supplier of the books.
