Curt and Kinga investigate a letter seal used by Robert Morris, financier of the American revolution, signer of the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation and the United States Constitution; and an original artists proof of the George Washington engraving used by Alfred Sealy in the first (and subsequent) Washington dollar bill.
