Added DiffLines:

* Several show up in James Clavell's ''Literature/AsianSaga'':
** Dirk Struan's chop is seen, and is stated to read "Green-eyed devil, dagger of the sea.", referencing his nature as a foreigner, a seaman and a man not to be crossed, as well as a {{Pun}} on his name.
** A sub-plot in ''Noble House'' involves Paul Choy stealing his father's chop to perform a business deal he knows to be profitable and good for his family, but his very traditional and conservative father disapproves of.

* In the events surrounding the conquest of Sweden by the Danish king Christian II in 1520, a number of Swedish notables were "asked" to sign and seal a document supporting Christian's claim to the throne. According to legend, bishop Wender Brask placed a note reading "Härtill är jag nödd och tvungen" ("Unto this I am forced and compelled") under the wax when putting on his seal. When Gustaf I Vasa drove the Danes out and began hunting down Christian's supporters, Brask broke his seal and displayed the note, which lead the king to pardon him for his involvement. How much of this is true and how much is legend is up for debate, but the document exists, Brask's seal is missing from it, and we know from other sources that Brask survived Gustaf's extremely thorough purges.

In Chinese and Japanese law, one needs a stamp to 'sign' documents in one's name - 'signatures' as Europeans know them are an impossibility as written Chinese doesn't have an alphabet. Also called a 'chop', one's stamp must to be registered with the authorities before it is officially recognized. These stamps, referred to (by the Japanese) as ''hanko'', or ''inkan'', are used with red ink to mark a document.

While one of the villains who is obsessed with imitating him has an exact replica of the ring made and wears it all the time under a glove [[spoiler: and since it's too small for him his finger turns gangrenous, fortunately Moist talks him into stepping outside into the sunlight without the glove, so the heat is intense enough to amputate and cauterize.]]

* For a while during the 18th century the Swedish monarchy had a personal stamp (created because it saved on time when there were too many things that legally required the king's signature). The use of it ended after the parliament confiscated it when the king refused to sign laws (it was an attempted ploy to claw back powers), declared that the previous acceptance of the stamping meant that constitutionally speaking the stamp could fill the legal role of the king, and used it to stamp laws themselves.
