A rare first-edition printed copy of the U.S. Constitution is set to go up for auction in New York.

One of the 13 original first-edition copies of the US Constitution will sell at @Sothebys in December

The sale is the first since @ConstitutionDAO was outbid by Ken Griffin for a different example that ultimately sold for $43 million
