Anti-J.F.K. handbill on "Storage Wars: Texas"

On "Storage Wars: Texas" (Tues., 10 p.m. ET on A&E) Lesa Lewis discovered a piece of potentially valuable memorabilia related to President Kennedy's assassination hidden in a storage locker.

Concealed within the frame of an old painting was a "Wanted For Treason" handbill featuring photos of President Kennedy and a list of his alleged transgressions.

These contentious pieces of anti-Kennedy propaganda were distributed on the streets of Dallas shortly before the President's scheduled visit in November 1963, and surviving examples are thought to be extremely rare.

As some online commenters have humorously pointed out, it does seem a little odd that so many people seem to leave valuables in abandoned storage lockers, but as HuffPost TV always says, "Storage Wars" is "all about the bottom line."

The bottom line for Lesa this week? A potential profit of around $1,000.

Keep up with the treasure-hunting on "Storage Wars: Texas," Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST on A&E.
