Hillary Clinton has a USA elbow sling

As you may have heard, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton broke her elbow three weeks ago.  What you probably haven’t heard is that her sling has the official Great Seal of the United States, specifically the coat of arms.

According to wikipedia:

The Great Seal of the United States is used to authenticate certain documents issued by the United States federal government. The phrase is used both for the physical seal itself (which is kept by the United States Secretary of State), and more generally for the design impressed upon it. The Great Seal was first used publicly in 1782.

The design on the obverse of the great seal is the national coat of arms of the United States.[1] It is officially used on documents such as United States passports, military insigniaembassy placards, and various flags. As a coat of arms, the design has official colors; the physical Great Seal itself, as affixed to paper, is monochrome.

It’s also on her arm sling see:

Zoom on the sling:

    I think there’s more to the emblem than the US Seal. I think it has an inscription around the perimeter, probably “US Department of State”.
