Did Scotland and the Knights Templar Influence the Founding of America and the Design of America's Great Seal?

Did Scotland and the Knights Templar Influence the Founding of America and the Design of America's Great Seal?

A World Exclusive Interview with Gary Gianotti, Feb 22, 2015

The official version of who designed and executed America’s Great Seal has been that three committees submitted designs, and ultimately the final designs were arranged by Charles Thomson and William Barton. Their designs were officially approved by Congress on June 20, 1782. Dr. Bob has always accepted this conclusion. Gary Gianotti has been working for years to document that Robert Scot, the engraver of the first die, was the actual man in charge of the final design. Gianotti presents his genealogical research that raises questions about how the Scot family is directly associated by marriage to families of the Knights Templar. According to his theory, Robert Scot did not come to America to win the respect of the Founding Fathers in an attempt to get the job of making the United States Seals. Instead Scot was trained and sent to the United States to do the job as part of the secret influence of these families. Called the “Unknown Superiors,” these were secret Jacobites exiled from Scotland, and Gianotti asks the crucial question of what role did Scotland and the Templars play in the founding of America and the design of America’s Great Seal?

Some observations about American Symbolism, By Gary Gianotti
All government, royal and church seals have an “art within the art.”

Pictured above is the 2nd Great Seal of the United States, made in 1782-1783. This is the oldest surviving United States Government Seal made by Robert Scot, James Trenchard, Pierre Eugene Du Simitere, and students in Philadelphia. This is the only U.S. Government Great Seal that has been studied in depth and in hand by me.

This seal is smaller than a half dollar coin and contains in near microscopic size scale, anywhere from 1,000-2,000 symbols everywhere on the seal. In the flat section that is not the relief, you can see an uneven surface made up of these symbols, done by needle piercing under lenses that can see up to .008. Lenses have been found that date back to 2,500 years ago that have the same magnification. This art was done in the same fashion by the ancient Scythian people who settled the U.K. and Europe. What I have just told you can be referenced and confirmed by William Neyberg, who is a member of “The Numismatic Bibliomania Society Esylum”. William is the leading authority of Robert Scot, doing this art in U.S. coins at the early U.S. Mint.

The George Washington Spy Button

This photo is said to be a George Washington Spy Button. It was recently acquired by Robert Silverstein. These buttons were worn by Washington’s spies who would be allowed to walk into camp and see Washington directly with no hesitation because they wore these buttons. Whether these are true spy buttons is not fully proven. The symbol on the button depicts the 8-pointed star. When he designed this button Robert Scot used this symbol as was done from the ancients to the Scottish Pictish kings. This links it back to the Crinan the Thane of Dunkeld lines of the kings, and connects George Washington with this bloodline history of Cospatrick of Dunbar, the son of Maldred and grandson of Crinan the Thane of Dunkeld.

George Washington Inaugural Buttons-Heraldic Eagles-Misconception & Fallacy

Design Origins of George Washington Inaugural Buttons Cipher Surface

Subject: BNS-1921 Paper By Francis

Greetings Dr. Davisson,

Thank you for taking my call today! My goal is to ask the BNS for permission to use a copy of the engraved portrait of Charles Edward Stuart, attributed to Sir Robert Strange(fig-22). The original portrait engraving can not be currently found in the British Museum Collection. Very possible the engraving is lost since 1921, since it can not be found in the collections.

The image is for a follow up document on the one I wrote with Dr. Miller in the Colonial Newsletter last December 2015 "Hidden Initials by the Early American Engravers Guild". Some of the known American Medal scholars are already trying to debunk the paper. The reason being, they will lose their control as authorities on these medals and identification. My new critics have no clue to the history of Robert Scot the US Mint Chief Coin engraver and the Scot family identity! Where I am an authority on Scots lost identity and his families lost history.

FYI, the letter symbol "E" you see to the left of the Star on the Bonnies Jacket. If I had known this image existed, I would have made mention in the CNL and it would have put this subject to rest. The symbol is found on most all Sovereign relics that would represent the Greek letter for God! When the symbol is found on the American Medals in question, it gives added authenticity to the relic. Where all the top experts on these medals have no clue to any of the symbolism, specifically by Scottish American Jacobites! Attached the image so you have the one in question!

Kind Regards,

Gary Gianotti FSA Scot,


Regards to my documented paper with requests to their presidents jacobite papers in 1923! These British Fought to learn Scottish Jacxobite symbolism with their best scholars! This history will allow England and Scotland to Bond over the art and family!

Dear Mr Gianotti:

After your call I emailed the information to the secretary of the British Numismatic Society.

He sent the following response:

I think this should cover the concerns you and I discussed.


Allan Davisson

Dear Allan

Thanks very much for this. In the UK, a text is copyright protected for 70 years after the end of the year the author dies in. Copyright covers writing in any form, including for example the pages of websites, blogs, and printed text. In this particular instance, Grant Francis died in 1940, 76 years ago, so the copyright on his work has expired and Mr Gianotti is free to reproduce the image.

Just to be sure and to clarify for Mr Gianotti's benefit, I will advise the Society's Council at our next meeting of Mr Gianotti's intentions, which I am sure they will rubber-stamp anyway. If Mr Gianotti would care to give credit to the Society as the source for the image, I know that would be much appreciated.

Regards, Peter
