LONDON (AP) - Orson Welles' personal draft script for "Citizen Kane" is up for sale - from the collection of an American almost as wealthy as the movie's monstrous newspaper mogul, though considerably more private.

Sotheby's auction house is offering the typed script, covered in Welles' amendments and annotations and marked "Mr. Welles' working copy" on the front page.

The script, which has an estimated price of 15,000 pounds to 20,000 pounds ($25,000 to $33,000), is part of a sale of more than 1,000 items owned by the late Stanley Seeger, an affluent collector of everything from Old Masters to historical oddities.

Other lots to be offered March 5 and 6 in London include 100 million year-old dinosaur eggs, Winston Churchill's armchair and a cocktail shaker once owned by Al Capone.
