The first time that the presidential seal was introduced was with an invitiation to a state dinner by President Rutherford B. Hayes to the Grand Duke Alexis Alexandrovich of Russia just after his inauguration in 1877. This invitation issued during the Hayes Administration shows the original design as a gold embossed eagle on the reverse of the envelope. It wasn't until 1945 that the eagle design was made an official seal of the president.
