Description

    King George IV of England, Signature, as King, "George R." The signature is excised from a larger document, 3.25" x 2", mounted on a larger paper with a contemporary engraving of the king, (8" x 10.5" overall).
    George IV (1762-1830) was king of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and Hanover from January 29,1820 until his death. He had earlier served as Prince Regent when his father, George III, suffered from a relapse into insanity. The Regency, George's nine-year tenure as Prince Regent, which commenced in 1811 and ended with George III's death in 1820, was marked by victory in the Napoleonic Wars in Europe.
    George is remembered largely for the extravagant lifestyle that he maintained as prince and monarch. By 1797 his weight had reached 245 pounds and by 1824 his corset was made for a waist of 50 inches. He had a poor relationship with both his father and his wife, Caroline of Brunswick, whom he even forbade to attend his coronation.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
