Document is stamp signed by George V and personally signed "Edward P" as Prince of Wales and Grand Master of the Order of the British Empire, partially printed document with manuscript annotations, conferring an Officer of the OBE on Noel Burn Rosher, Esquire, with embossed seal in extremely fine condition. Most documents from this period are offered with the stamped signature of Edward - a copy of which we present below for comparison. This document has his early personal autograph and is scarce as such. A very nice signed document from England's most controversial Sovereign of the Twentieth Century.
