§ 404. Official seals. The official seals of boards of supervisors of
the several counties, county seal, county treasurer's seal and the seal
of the register of deeds shall continue to be the official seals,
respectively, of such boards, county treasurer, surrogate and register
of deeds and used as such, respectively, when authorized by law. When
any such seal shall be lost, destroyed, or become unfit for use, the
board of supervisors of the county interested therein or not having such
seal, shall cause a new seal or seals to be made at the expense of the
county. A description of each of such seals, together with the
impressions therefrom, shall be filed in the office of the county clerk
and in the office of the secretary of state. In counties having two
county seats, a duplicate of the county seal shall be procured and kept
at the county seat where the county clerk's office is not situated, at
some place to be designated by the county clerk and may be used by him
the same as at his office. In counties having but one court house and
which is located more than five miles from the county clerk's office, a
duplicate of the county seal shall be procured and kept at such court
house and the county clerk may use the same at such court house. The
seal kept by the county clerk in each county, as prescribed in the
judiciary law, shall continue to be the seal of the county, and must be
used by him where he is required to use an official seal.
