Historic document to be auctioned online

NEW YORK -- A 1776 copy of the Declaration of Independence, in near mint condition, will meet the 21st century when it goes on sale on the Internet for an estimated $4 million to $6 million.\r\rThe rare document, being sold by an Atlanta investment firm, will be offered on Sotheby's new auction Web site,, in late spring, the auction house announced Tuesday in a full-page ad in The New York Times.\r\rSotheby's said the copy may be the last one to come up for sale because the other owners plan to donate theirs to museums. It's expected to fetch between $4 million and $6 million, which would be a record for a historic document sold online, Sotheby's said. -- The Augusta Chronicle
