Whenever a deed or conveyance, given by an officer or other person mentioned in section 2A:61-1 of this title pursuant to a sale made by him, is lost before the recording thereof, the person entitled to the deed or conveyance may apply to the court under whose direction the sale was made and the deed or conveyance made and delivered for a confirmatory deed or conveyance. The court shall, upon being satisfied that the original deed or conveyance has been so lost, order the officer who made the same to make a confirmatory deed or conveyance to the grantee named in the lost deed or conveyance for the real estate sold. The confirmatory deed or conveyance shall recite the fact of the loss of the original deed or conveyance and the order for the confirmatory deed or conveyance and shall, in other respects, be in the same form as the original deed or conveyance, and shall be as good and valid and have the same force and effect as the original deed or conveyance.
