Talk about lucking out and finding a rare official copy in a thrift store and it is estimated to be worth 100,000 times the $2.48 purchase price. That is a nice little profit. I am sure the owner of the thrift store is  banghead   bomb   cry

Well he doesn't deserve to have it if he is that ignorant. How can you not miss something that is one of the most important documents in the US's history.  sarcastic

I don't think it's fair to call the shop owner ignorant. After all, it's a thrift store - he's just trying to sell as much cheap shit as he can. He doesn't expect to have any item that is worth a fart, and it's not worth the money to have any item appraised and authenticized. Yeah, it's a bad break that the shop did sell a genuine item for waaayyyy under value, but sometimes that happens. Don't fault the shop owner though.
