One of 13 original copies of U.S. Constitution sells for record price


One of 13 remaining original copies of the United States Constitution was sold to a private investor on Thursday, netting an almost $43.2 million price tag and catapulting past original and more conservative estimates of a potential bidding total.

According to a report from The Hill, Sotheby’s Books and Manuscripts Department originally estimated that this copy of the Constitution would sell for anywhere between $15 million and $20 million.

Although the identity of the private investor remains anonymous, another bidding group came in a close second in the bidding war, a crypto organization called Constitution DAO. The group claims on its official Twitter page that they pooled over $40 million from 17,437 contributors to purchase the rare copy of the Constitution.
