No. Obviously not. Any amendment supersedes anything wrottein into the U.S. Constitution previously.

If what you suggest were the case, it would be impossible to amend. And that clearly was not the Framers' intent, since they wrote 12 amendments, and ratified 10 of them, shortly after teh original document was first ratified.
