Who was holding slightly over 50 % of US debt during Kennedy's Presidency?

134 Billion dollar Kennedy era bonds have been seized by Italian police --- 2 Japanese men were carrying 134 Billion dollar Kennedy era bonds

US total debt is roughly double that figure in 1962

So which nation was buying US treasury bonds during the Kennedy era ?

Update:

1962 $248.0 u.s. debt in 1962

1963 $254.0 u.s. debt in 1963

Which nation at that time could and did buy slightly more than 50 % of US debt --- Was it a multitude of nations or just a handful ? Who were they?
