A Post Medieval or Modern bag seal. It is circular and has a slot through the seal from edge to edge. One face is stamped with the a now worn legend in the center which appears to read "DAMPF MUHLEN..." and is possibly in german. This is surrounded by another legend that is too worn to be read. The reverse has a floral decoration. The lead has a cream patina.

Another seal on the database, SWYOR-639D77, notes that DAMPF MUHLEN A.G. suggests a German steam mill manufacturer - see for more details.
