Civil War State Seals

Civil War State Seals

Two major types of electrotype copies were produced by Colonel John Pickett in the year 1872. This seal had been ordered by the Confederate government and it totally represents the equestrian portrait of Washington. On the other side of the flip, the seal also represents the phrase of “Deo Vindice”. The solid silver which is an entirely completed one was sent to the US and finally, the seal arrived at the Richmond in the year 1864. Then in the year, 1865, the seal was smuggled by a specific clerk in the State Department. In the year 1872, John T. Pickett had a series of the electrotype copies of the unique original seal before giving it to the Thomas Selfridge. Eventually, the reproduction took in the unlimited numbers and the copies were sent to the orphans in the South. In the present era, the original impressions are an important one. It is said to be that the great seal of confederate states of us include the electrotype impressions such as the original dye silver including the gold plated one.
