sealed and delivered
A phrase in a certificate of acknowledgment reciting the execution of the instrument by the person acknowledging. 1 Am J2d Ack § 75. The intention to seal, whether expressed or implied, does not make a seal. The recital "signed, sealed and delivered," or the words "whereunto we have affixed our seals," do not make a sealed instrument, if as a fact nothing is affixed to the signatures which the law recognizes as a seal.
