New York Judiciary Law
Sec. § 30
Lost or Destroyed Seal Must Be Replaced

When the seal of a court is so injured, that it can not be conveniently used, the court must cause it to be destroyed; and when the seal of a court is lost or destroyed, the court must cause a new seal to be made, similar in all respects to the former seal, which shall become the seal of the court. The expense of a new seal for a county clerk, or a local court in a city, must be paid as part of the contingent expenses of the county or of the court, as the case requires. The expense of a new seal for any other court, except a surrogate’s court, must be paid from the state treasury. The provisions of this section shall not be applicable in those cases where special provisions are otherwise made by law.
