Anyone else see this auction? The Emancipation Proclamation SIGNED by Abraham Lincoln
apparently there were about 100 of these made, is this real? going for 1.5 million right now (of course i cant afford it!)
Holy cow!! Buy now and get FREE SHIPPING! =D
Cool, I'd hang that right next to my original copy of the Declaration of Independence
If I buy this does it help me get my reperations ?
Throw in a lock of Abe's hair and I'll consider it.
You hate the South, don't you?
Dang!! My credit card limit is just a little short this month.
Anyways, I'd love to have this document ....I have a copy posted up at my place, but I am pretty certain it is not the original (lol). Unless I got a whale of a deal.
On Nov. 15th, Christie's sold the "authorized edition" of the Emancipation Proclamation for $688,000.
There are approximately 15 surviving copies in permanent public collections, and Christie's is aware of only two other copies in private hands.
Seems like a big step from $688,000 to half a million. I wonder what makes this guys worth "so" much more?
half a million = one and a half million. That was a million dollar mistake.......
Will they take my deed to the Brooklyn Bridge as collateral?
PayPal are going to love that. They take 10% on the seller's end
I'll trade all the "free plasma TV's" I got notified by email that I had won this past month for it.
Only forty-eight copies of this Authorized Edition were printed and signed by Lincoln. We cannot be sure how many survived the war, or its aftermath. In all probability, about half still exist, most by now in museums and libraries.
Another copy of this signed edition sold in November 2005 at Christies. The one we are offering is in much better condition, with full margins. Feel free to email or call us for details.
I've got this thing in the back yard. The first $27 million takes it.
To answer your question: "The one we are offering is in much better condition, with full margins."
Depeneds on shipping costs.
Hey it's taking up space so make an offer.
Is it signed by Moses?
That's what freedom costs.
Call up Fed Ex and bill me for the delivery charges.
I have to be honest with you, there is a cherub missing but
I'm pretty sure the host is still inside. Take care when you open the package.
I can't open it! I have to preserve it.
And what happened to the cherub? I'm gonna have to answer for it.
YOu are soooooo lucky to have built a house on the Ark of the Covenant. Not many people would have been that wise. Do you ever rent it out or are you just interested in selling it?
Just take a back cast off it and pour a new one from King Hiram's Gold.
The new cherub may be backwards but King Hirams Gold my leave you safe in spite of the after market upgrade.
No peaking under the lid though. Otherwise you may become a Nazi soldier tostada.
It was there when I closed the sale next to a real mint Stahl chainsaw that came in real handy.
The chainsaw isn't for sale.
I have a signed picture of Abe throwing out the first pitch at a Cubs game. How much you think it's worth?
Somethings hinky.... two months ago the seller was buying used children's clothing. Now he's selling historical documents that appear to be in immaculate condition. My fraud-o-meter is pegging on 100!
The used children's clothing was required to make the rag paper for the document. No saying what he used to beam Abe into the future to sign it for him.
