Post medieval lead cloth seal. 14mm in length, 12mm wide and 3mm thick with a weight of 1.91grams.

The seal is circular and formed of two discs now incomplete which would have been joined by a short rectangular strip.

Obverse inscription reads I?-/160-/ C N. This could be a match for the seal of Thomas Lane (TL) 1603 or Joshua Culey (IC) , 1606 Mayors of Norwich.

Reverse image may be of a lion or a portculis?
