A complete post medieval lead cloth seal dating to the period AD c.1500- 1700.

The seal is comprised of two discs, which are both linked together by a rectangular tag. The tag has appeared to have been a single piece lead with symmetrical sides and then folded over, sealing the two discs together. Originally, the symbol would have been stamped on the obverse surface of a disc, however this ceases to exist.

Overall, the seal is 27.63mm in height, the diameter of the two discs is 21.63mmm the overall thickness of the seal is 7mm, and it weighs 13.76g.
