Historic Border Patrol Badge Artifact

USBP Travel Documents, Part 2

Certificate of Naturalization

Although there have been many different revisions of the Certificate of Naturalization, there are two common versions. The present version has a gold embossed Great Seal of the United States at the top center portion. Earlier versions had gray or beige background designs and did not contain the embossed seal. All certificates of naturalization are printed on watermarked paper. The watermark design of the Department of Justice seal and the letters “USA” becomes visible when the document is held up to a strong light.
