George Washington’s personal copy of the Constitution to be auctioned

Posted on June 15th, 2012 No Comments

George Washington’s personal copies of the Constitution and Bill of Rights are set to be auctioned on June 22 in New York.

The auction house in charge of the sale expects the items to go for $2 million to $3 million. This copy of the nation’s founding document was bound in a book in 1789. Two other copies were printed alongside it, one going to John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, and the other going to Thomas Jefferson.

This copy of the Constitution includes notes written in the margins by Washington himself as well as his signature on the inside.

The treasure is being sold from the estate of a man who died in 2007. If you need help with your estate, contact the estate planning attorneys of Garg & Associates, P.C., at 281-362-2865.
