WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. government Tuesday approved a plan by the National Park Service to sell some of its most treasured artifacts, including the “I Love You” and “Star Spangled Banner” signs and the bust of President John F. Kennedy, as part of an auction by a Los Angeles company.
The National Park Service says it plans to sell a pair of signs for $14,500 each on eBay. Those two signs alone are estimated to fetch up to $9 million.
Another pair, two busts of Kennedy and the bust of former President Lyndon Johnson, could command a bit more.
The auction is separate from the National Mall and Museum, an enormous museum on a former federal building that is currently used as an exhibit.
The National Mall was created with the help of a $2 billion federal investment that was mostly in the form of borrowing from federal trust funds.
The sale of historic artifacts is a matter of pride for the American people.
