• Short Summary

    Good footage of how the South African royal seal is made.

  • Description

    Note: Probably filmed in South Africa.

    Full titles read: "THE SEAL OF AUTHORITY."

    Good C/U's of the large dies used by the South African government. Various shots of the dies being placed into a metal collar. The dies are placed into a small oven to heat them up. After heating celluloid powder is then poured on top of the die along with the rope from the document the seal is to be attached to. The dies are then pressed together under a large device. Good C/U of the completed royal seal attached to the document.
