George Washington signed his personal copy of the US Constitution which sold at auction last year for a record setting $9.8 Million. Ironically, the book returned to the same library from which it was sold by Washington's grand nephew in 1876 for a paltry $13. That's a whole lotta inflation goin' on!

That is a "unique" item if I ever saw one!
