DAILY NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, Washington, D.C., Dec. 14, 1849
* Great Seal of California
At the bottom of page 3 is an article with a small heading: "California Coat Of Arms" which describes this early version of the state seal (some alterations since). This was the very first seal of California, actually adopted by the Calif. Constitutional Convention shortly before it became a state.
Four pages, very nice condition.
