Two lead alloy bag seals dating from the Post-medieval or early Modern period, circa AD 1500-1800.

One seal depicts a cow and calf on the front and elaborate monologure on the reverse. It measures 13.8 mm in length, 13 mm in width, 2.6 mm in thickness and weighs 3.2 grams. There are parallels recorded on the PAS database; NMS-F725B4 was discovered in Norfolk

The other is slightly worn but appears to have the same design. It measures 18.1 mm in length, 12.6 mm in width, 8.6 mm in thickness and weighs 4 grams.
