This paper seal is from an 1853 Doctorate of Law degree certificate, printed on calfskin vellum.
It is the finest paper embossing I have ever seen, with every detail sharp, crisp, and clear.
The seal is attached to the certificate with a silk ribbon.
As tempted as I am to remove the seal and hang it around my crow's neck or pin it to a mannequin, I have resisted ... so far.
It's in the shop, for a few days at least.
No guarantees it will stay there!
