Want to see the future? Maybe a crystal ball belonging to one of the world's most famous psychics can help. An auction of items from the estate of Jeane Dixon is being held on July 26 and can be bid on online through Artfact.
The psychic who is said to have predicted John F. Kennedy's assassination in Parade magazine in 1956 and was a personal advisor to Nancy and Ronald Reagan, had a syndicated astrology column for decades. Among Dixon's items up for sale are two of her crystal balls as well as letters from Richard Nixon, Ronald Regan, George Bush and John Glenn. The crystal ball shown at right has a starting bid of $500.
After her death in 1997 many of Dixon's possessions ended up with Leo M. Bernstein, a Washington D.C. investor and a banker who had Dixon for a client. In 2002, he opened the Jeane Dixon Museum and Library in Strasburg, Virginia. He died last year and now the museum is closed and the contents are now up for auction.
