While the vast majority of signings by George V are stamped facsimiles, this is a handwritten autograph by the King and not a reproduction or facsimile.  All the documents are in Very Fine Condition and represent a wonderful opportunity to acquire a great diversity of embossed letterheads from the Home Office, the War Office, The Prime Minister's Office and Buckingham Palace as well as an authentic King George V signature on a License to Wear the Chevalier Cross of the Legion of Honour.
