BOSTON (AP) – A map of Cuba that President John F. Kennedy referred to during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962 has sold at auction for nearly $140,000.
The map that Kennedy called his “victory map ” was sold by Boston-based RR Auction during an auction that ended Wednesday.
The map shows the position of every Soviet missile, bomber and fighter jet, and nuclear storage facility in Cuba as of noon, October 27, 1962, and includes the nine targets that American planes would have bombed had Kennedy ordered air strikes on the island.
The map is marked “Secret” in the lower left and upper right corners.
