RARE DOCUMENT COPY TO BE AUCTIONED

NEW YORK (AP) — A very special birth certificate will be auctioned
off later this year — a rare copy of the U.S. Constitution.

Sotheby’s announced Friday — appropriately on Constitution Day —
that in November it will put up for auction one of just 11 surviving
copies of the Constitution from the official first printing produced
for the delegates to the Constitutional Convention and for the
Continental Congress. It’s the only copy that remains in private
hands and has an estimate of $15-$20 million.
