A fine early vintageand genuine antique document., although it is not as early as the 12th Century when Malcolm IV reigned...this is indeed a very early document with official seals at the bottom., printed in what appears to be Latin.
Upper left showing the King and what might be the Queen., [ Malcolm IV did not marry] therefore, not sure why this image is shown.This is avery curious document., thick laid hand made paper stock., entire item is printed.
Using a powerful magnify glass, the lettering on the paper hasimperfections as if it was actually written, but I am positive this is a printed document.
This document has no stains, no odors., could be very nicely framed for a fantastic display., there are two tear repairs down from the center, and twoup from the bottom. Not bad, and acid free mending's. [ if I had to guess on the age of this, I would say it was likely pre-1800, when held to the light, it has a watermark showing the Cross and the IHS and the name of the paper maker. [ which I cannot read clearly ]. This is a very old and curious document. Measures in size about 17 x 25".
NOTE: along the right side of the document is a written remark in rich brown ink of the 18th Century..."Mr. Stuart had 60 Guineas for engraving this Charter", there are other remarks on the back of the document., also our camera did not do itjustice, it is not that strange color, it is the shade of a typical document of the 18th Century.
