Our miniature version of the United States presidential state car features the Presidential Seal. With its free wheel action, it might glide across the floor with more agility than the heavyweight armored “Beast” does in its Washington, D.C. motorcade. Fun for kids and POTUS watchers, it makes a nice gift.
The Presidential Seal is synonymous with presidential authority and executive power. However, there were many different iterations, modifications, and alterations that ultimately led to the modern version that is universally recognized today. The origins of the presidential seal can be traced back to the Continental Congress. In 1782, Secretary of the Continental Congress Charles Thomson used elements from three different committees to produce his design. He then shared his sketch with William Barton, who added some minor changes to Thomson’s creation. The result was the Great Seal of the United States, which would be used to generally represent the federal government moving forward.
