Definition of SYMBOL


SYMBOL

A sign; a token; a representation of one thing by
another.


2. A symbolical delivery is equivalent, in many cases, in its legal
effects, to actual delivery; as, for example, the delivery of the keys of a
warehouse in which goods are deposited, is a delivery sufficient to transfer
the property. 1 Atk. 171; 5 John. 335; 2 T. R. 462; 7 T. R. 71; 2 Campb. 243; 1
