Want a piece of the Iowa state capitol dome?

Contractors have been working hard for some time to remove damaged bricks on the dome of the Iowa state capitol. Over 14,000 of them have been removed so far.

State Rep. John Landon (R-Ankeny) says only around a thousand to 1,100 of them were removed intact. And now they're going on sale.

Landon says the contractor donated them to the Capitol Planning Commission, which is going to sell them off to raise money.

For $100, you can get a bubble-wrapped brick in a box, complete with a numbered medallion to certify its authenticity.

Landon says the proceeds from the sale will go to fund restoration of monuments on the state capitol grounds.

Officially, they go on sale March 1st at the tour guide desk in the basement level of the capitol.  But they've already begun taking reservations for the limited number of bricks.
