Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A complete cast lead seal of post-medieval to modern date. The seal is circular in plan with a rectangular cross section and is comprised of a single disc of metal which is perforated by a hole running across its diameter which would have been for iron wire ligatures which were used to secure a bag.
Both sides of the seal bare stamped text possibly around central designs though the degree of wear now makes these elements indistinguishable.
The metal is a dark blackish-grey colour and is worn. The seal is 13.9mm in diameter, 2.8mm thick and weighs 3.6g.
