These are original Royal Proclamations printed and issued, respectively, on February 20, 1826, which Proclamation marks the beginning of the executive regulating of the vending of ale and spirituous liquors in the colony, and that of February 22, 1832, published in response to a riot of the men of Harbour Grace and Carbonear that occurred on January 9, 1832. I am selling both together, for cash. I can provide the provenance back 20 years for myself and another 20 or so back before me through the person who gifted them to me. All expenses associated with the purchase are to be borne by purchaser. Both Proclamations are in remarkably good shape, given they are near 2 centuries old, and in particular that of 1832 is in very good shape. I have been advised that in the right hands they might be worth $10,000.00 each. I will allow the purchaser of these to engage in the efforts, within the specialized market, that could see, if that be close to right, a return of 500% on this purchase. In terms of the scepticism inherent in questions of provenance, please consider the likelihood of obscure government documents from an obscure colony of the British Empire of relatively small value now, and none when created, except perhaps for the starting of fires in wood-stoves, to have been manufactured. If I was selling a Picasso print, yes, no amount of caution and expense in determining provenance would be unreasonable. These proclamations? Not so much.
