Queen Elizabeth II

Very early DS, signed “Elizabeth R,” two pages on two adjoining sheets, 9.75 x 14.75, March 26, 1952. Official diplomatic appointment from the first full month of her reign. In part: “In respect of Our United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and Our Good Friend the President of the United States of Mexico, relative to telecommunications between British Honduras and Mexico, We have judged it expedient to invest a fit person with Full Power to conduct the said discussion on Our part…John William Taylor…We do by these Presents name, make, constitute and appoint him Our undoubted Commissioner.” The crisply embossed red seal of George VI is affixed at the conclusion, as the newly crowned Queen Elizabeth’s would not yet have been made. In fine condition, with expected document wear and soiling to the first page. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
