Authentic U.S. Government Red Tape Paperweight


Who knew?

From the website:

    Authentic U.S. Government Red Tape Paperweight

    At last — a government term that means exactly what it says.

    Official United States documents were once bound with red twill tape that had to be "cut through" to gain access.

    This encased bit of "red tape" is from Civil War documents found in the records of the Union Army by volunteers of the Civil War Records Conservation Corp at the National Archives.
