The written oath used by Reagan to practice for his swearing-in ceremony in 1981.

(FoxNews) – Even Ronald Reagan needed most of January to begin signing the
correct year, and the proof is in a one-of-a-kind document inscribed by the
Gipper and given to a trusted aide the day the 40th president took the oath
of office. 

After giving the 41-word oath to Chief Justice Warren Burger on Jan. 20, 1981,
Reagan inscribed and dated the printed version he’d used for practice for a
trusted aide.

The document is now up for sale for $62,500, according to rare documents
dealer Nathan Raab, whose Philadelphia-area company obtained the item
from an unnamed seller.
