NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A rare piece of American history will go to the highest bidder.

A first-edition printed copy of the United States Constitution is heading to auction by Sotheby’s in mid-November.

The auction house just announced it is expected to sell for between $15-20 million. It last sold for $165,000 in 1988.

Two other first editions are housed at the Library of Congress.
