    "The first "official seal" of the United States was the green Registry Seal, issued in 1872. It was intended to be used as a security device to seal the backflaps of special "Registered Package Envelopes" to prevent tampering with the enclosed registered letters, which often contained cash. The need for the use of Registry Seals ended after only three years, when a new envelope design was introduced that did not require that a label be used to secure the flap."
