A lead post-medieval bag seal, dating to the period AD 1700-1850. It is broadly circular, comprising of both parts but has been squashed or compressed, and so now measures 20.29mm wide, 17.98mm in length and 3.29mm thick. It is slightly dished. On one side, there appears to be a standing figure facing left, and part of the legend or inscription reading "C W S". The inscription on the other face is difficult to discern. The patina is smooth, and a mid-grey in colour. In total, the bag seal weighs 5.88g.
