Harry Potter's letter of acceptance letter to the Hogwarts School is heading to auction. The 7-inch envelope addressed to HARRY at "The Cupboard Under the Stairs, 4, Privet Drive," will be sold by movie collectible auction house Prop Store.

Lot #: 169 is described as follows:

Harry Potter's (Daniel Radcliffe) Hogwarts Acceptance Letter with Wax Seal

A hero envelope and letter used in Chris Columbus' fantasy-adventure film HARRY Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. Owl post inundated the Dursley household with letters informing HARRY Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) of his acceptance into Hogwarts - despite Uncle Vernon's (Richard Griffiths) best efforts. The envelope is made from marble-effect paper, with Harry's address printed in green on the front of the envelope, and the Hogwarts crest on the reverse.

The hero envelope features a real red-wax Hogwarts seal, unlike the many entirely printed versions that were also used in the scene. The envelope remains sealed with a letter seemingly contained within. The envelope is in excellent condition; the wax seal has cracked and two small fragments are missing, but the Hogwarts crest is still clearly identifiable. Originally sold at a charity auction, the envelope is accompanied by a letter of donation from Warner Bros. and a copy of the letter contained within. Dimensions (envelope): 13 cm x 18 x 0.5 cm (5 1/4'' x 7 1/4'' x 1/4'')

Other props from the POTTER films that will be up for auction include Ron Weasley's Howler, and autographed items by Daniel Radcliffe. The auction gets underway on September 26th, but online bids are being accepted. Click here for additional details
