King Sho Shitsu was granted this seal by the Emperor of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1912) after the fall
of China's Ming Dynasty(1368-1644). Before receiving this seal, the Ryukyus had returned the Seal of
the King that had been granted by the Ming Dynasty.
Made of gold plated silver, the seal has a camel-shaped grip, and is inscribed,
"King of the Ryukyus" in Han and Manchurian characters.
