Rosvers' weighmasters seal


Title
Rosvers' weighmasters seal
Description
The weighmaster’s seal is a machine that was used to emboss a tobacco ticket with an official emblem. This press was made by Rosvers Desk Press. Much like a notary public, a weighmaster is certified by the state, and in the case of tobacco, signs off on the correct weight of the tobacco a farmer brings into the warehouse to be auctioned. The machine is pressed onto the tobacco ticket and a raised official stamp, or seal, is permanently marked on the ticket. The seal signifies that the weight of the tobacco is legally accurate. Date approximated.
