A Group of Crypto Investors Tried to Buy a Copy of the Constitution. It Didn’t Work Out

In the November 15 edition of this newsletter (at https://eogn.com/page-18080/12129879), I published an article that said (in part):

“On Thursday, November 18, Sotheby’s is auctioning off “an exceptionally rare and extraordinarily historic” first printing of the U.S. Constitution. Only thirteen copies remain, besides the one located in Washington D.C.’s National Archives museum, from the original printing of 500 that the founders issued for submission to the Continental Congress.”

Now the auction has been held and the group of crypto investors that had attempted to purchase the rare copy has failed to do so. Details may be found in an article by Paul R. La Monica in the CNN Business News web site at: https://www.cnn.com/2021/11/18/investing/constitution-auction-sothebys-crypto/index.html.
