For the I-Beam
I finally decided to pull the trigger.
When we go old school (and the Grid doesn't have to go down to go old school once in a while) my personal correspondence will be adorned with an old-fashioned wax seal.
Mine is 1.5 inch oval, copper head, the handle is high-polish black Zebra marble.
My seal is hard to make out in the pic - it is our III 300 helm, with the scar, the III at the bottom, and between the cheek guards I have a stylized "K".
My first two attempts with wax were absolute Fails, so I'll have to play with it for a while.
Here's the one the company made for me - it looks damned good. And different color wax can accentuate detail.
One of the primary reasons I bought it is much more important than the old-school sealing of papers.
There are III Patriots and Militia (Just so you Militia guys know - The fact that you are Organized Militia means, without a shadow of doubt, you are a III Patriot. But I'll continue to make the distinction for a while) who will be receiving letters of thanks, letters of commendation, and other correspondence from me that deserves a personal touch. You Patriots will see this wax seal first. And a few Enemies of Liberty will probably become familiar with it as well...
I am proud to stand among you all.
