George Washington's annotated copy of the United States Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and first Acts of Congress recently sold for $9,826,500 to the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association. This artifact had been in the Mount Vernon Library until 1876, when it was sold at auction for $13, having been consigned by the president's grandnephew.
