A complete lead-alloy bag seal of late Post-Medieval date, c.AD 1700 - 1900. The seal is comprised of a single disc of metal which is perforated by holes running across its diameter which would have been for wire or textile ligatures which were used to secure a bag. One side has a relief design featuring an annulet from which a straight line extends. To one side of this is a second indistinct design. The reverse is undecorated.

The metal has a mid-brown patina and is worn. The seal is 20.8mm in diameter, 5.6mm thick and weighs 10.2g.
