UNIDENTIFIED OBJECT

Unique ID: LVPL-3FB0B0

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

An unidentified lead alloy object, of uncertain date. The object is rectangular in plan and flat. It is stamped with the Roman numeral or letter V in the centre through which there is a crack. The rear of the object is undecorated. It has a light brown patina.

The object may have functioned as a Post-Medieval cloth seal which were often rectangular; however although the upper edge is incomplete, there is no evidence of attachment. Another possibility is that it was metal working debris used as a practice piece.
