Arthur Durance George - Grant of Arms

Another EBay grant to fall under the hammer to the collector who uses the identity of lynnthorpe is that of Arthur Durance George, dated July 6th 1910. This time, lynnthorpe purchased a College of Arms English grant, the hammer falling at $199 (approximately £107). It seems that at some time in its life this grant of arms found its way to Southern California in the United States of America and, if the photos are accurate, it seems also to have lost its wax seals which is a pity. This well travelled grant will now be winging its way to Australia as I write.
