The Constitution is for sale!

It is an extremely rare official first-edition printed copy of the US Constitution.

This edition will be on the block on December 13 at Sotheby’s New York auction house.

The historic document is expected to sell for between $20 million and $30 million.

It’s the first time in nearly 130 years that this copy has come up for auction.

The high bidder at the live single-lot auction will possess one of just 13 known surviving copies of the Constitution.

The copy is from the first printing for delegates to the Constitutional Convention in 1787 and the Continental Congress.

Some of the other 11 surviving copies of the Constitution are in state archives and institutions.
