Up for auction on eBay is an original copy of the charter and by-laws for Timothy Leary's League of Spiritual Discovery, founded in Millbrook, New York in 1966. With four days left in the auction, the current bid is $250. From the auction listing:

Five - 8 1/2" X 11" pages total, with the first four pages stapled top-left, page 5 having come loose about 20 years ago....
