RARE COPY OF DOCUMENT FOUND!

(FoxNews) – A Las Vegas collector is marking the Fourth of July with a rare find
he stumbled upon–a copy of the Declaration of Independence produced in the
1830s.

An engraver made 201 facsimiles of the original Declaration of Independence in
1823 using a copper plate. Kevin Kostiner recently discovered that he has a reproduction of one of those facsimiles.

“It’s wonderful to see it,” Mark Hall-Patton, a Las Vegas museums administrator
told Fox5 Las Vegas. “You don’t see these (copies) of the original 201 that
were printed.”

According to reports, what Kostiner purchased at an auction for $75 may be
worth $35,000.

Kostiner was the winning bidder on four boxes of papers being tossed out by
the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.
