The Crest of the Arms of the United States, was the Thirteen Stars dispelling the Cloud. The reverse side of the Arms or Seal was an unfinished Pyramid. The likeness was copied with great care and accuracy from Stuart's; the motto is from Jefferson's original draft, and the signature, a fac-simile of his autograph, on the Declaration of Independence.
