An incomplete post-medieval lead-alloy cloth seal, dating to the period AD 1500-1700. The disc is roughly circular, with worn edges. Both sides of the seal are decorated. One side shows a cross pattee with a pellet on the end of each arm; a further pellet is positioned with the angle of the arms at the centre. The other side displays what appears to be a coat of arms. The depiction is off-centre and consists of an oval double border containing a rounded cross with a shorter line at 45 degrees in each of the four angles of the cross.

The cloth seal measures 13.66 mm in diameter, 1.58 mm thick and weighs 1.48 g.
