Original manuscript of Auld Lang Syne up for auction

Published on June 26th, 2009 | by Admin


An original manuscript of one of the world’s best-known songs could fetch over $80,000 when it hits the aucition block later this year.

But in an unusual twist, the buyer of the fragment of Robert Burns’ manuscript for Auld Lang Syne will not be able to take it home.

Instead, the winning bidder will become the “patron” of the rare Scottish artefact.

The manuscript of the song – sung across the world at New Year – will be housed in a new museum dedicated to the bard in his native Ayrshire.
