George Washington’s personal copy of the U.S. Constitution and a draft of the Bill of Rights sold Friday at Christie’s for a whopping $9.8 million.
Ann Bookout, regent of the board of the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, won the bid.
“This is our mission to bring home all things Washington,” Bookout said. “We want people to know that Mount Vernon is the home of where these wonderful treasures should belong.”
