I found a copy of the Declaration of Independence at a local thrift store. I am interested in knowing its worth. Who should I take it to for a close examination of it?

We must never forget everything that our country went through to become what it is today. We must constantly remind ourselves of our freedoms and how fortunate we are to have the freedom to worship God! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!
