Sotheby’s Auction House is giving you a chance to buy the U.S. Constitution.
Well, maybe not the Constitution. However, it is an ultra-rare copy — one of the first 11 printed for the delegates to the Constitutional Convention, says Sotheby’s Selby Kiffer. The auction house is expecting to fetch somewhere between $15 million and $20 million for it.
The 234-year-old document is going to be put on display in Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas before it heads back to New York for the auction, which has been scheduled for November, Kiffer says.
