Question from Tracey - Mary Queen of Scots' death warrant

The death warrant for Mary, Queen of Scots...does it still exist? And if so, is it ever on display?

One copy survives and was recently bought by the Church of England. I posted about it on the News blog here: http://tudorhistory.org/blog/2008/02/19/mary-queen-of-scots-death-warrant-purchased/

There is also info at the official site for the Lambeth Palace library: http://www.lambethpalacelibrary.org/

A copy of Mary stuart Queen of scot's death warrant does exist but I am not sure what happened to it after her execution.
A copy of her speech at the scaffold also was recorded at the time and also still survives.
