A large metal seal from the Egmont Park Board. The body of the seal is painted black, with a mid-brown, olive and cream floral pattern. The cream flowers have red accents. The seal has a large handle for pushing the seal into paper. The seal press sits on an oval base, originally painted black with gold trim. The surface of the base has corroded badly and has become a mid-brown colour. The seal itself is made from steel and its surface has rusted, but the moving parts are still operational.

However, the changing nature of government departments meant the National Parks Authority and the park boards, including Egmont National Park Boards, were abolished. This saw the end of this stamp's career, as the newly developed Department of Conservation took over the management of Egmont National Park.
