Magna Carta to be auctioned

A rare copy of the Magna Carta could bring as much as US$30 million when it is auctioned in New York by Sotheby's in December 2007. The 1297 copy is one of only 20 reissued by King Edward I.

The copy, now being held by the National Archives and Records Administration in Washington D.C., is one of only two outside of Great Britain and is currently owned by the Perot Foundation.
