Despite the poor preservation of the details I believe this is a cement bag seal for G & T Earle of Hull. In the centre of each face is a pelican feeding her five chicks. There are a number already recorded on the PAS database for example see http://finds.org.uk/database/artefacts/record/id/475031 For another and a history of the company see http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=447

Despite the poor preservation on this seal I believe it is a cement seal of the company G & T Earle of Hull. It is the more complex of their two types of seals. The inscription on the lower part of one face can be seen to be [PELIC]AN BRAN[D]. The image in the centre is a pelican feeding her five young which can just be made out in the image. For an example on the PAS database see NLM-4B8562. For a history of the company and another seal see http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=3107

Th forked beard was a characteristic of portraits of the Emperor Septimius Severus. He also visited Britin to lead his army against the Caledonians. If it is an imperial portrait, perhaps it is of him rather than Marcus Aurelius?

The WD with the broad arrow would indicated that this is a War Department seal. There are several examples already on tha PAS database eg SUR-AF4E05 & LIN-A8A236.

I believe this is more likely to be a cast bronze coin of Morocco and dates to the 19th century. From its size it is almost certainly a reformed 2 falus piece. The face containg Arabic script detailing the mint and date in European numerals is very difficult to decipher in the image. See 'Standard Catalog of World Coins' L Krause, C Mishler & CR Bruce II (1988 edit) p1144, 163a.

This seal has a representation of a pelican feeding her five young on both sides. This is one of several seals used by G & T Earle of Hull who were cement manufacturers and dates to the early 20th century. The inscription can be reconstructed 'G & T EARLE. LIMITED.HULL'. There are several examples on the database eg YORYM-3CA931 and in other places eg http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=1743

I wonder if this alnage seal has the bust of George I. I think the inscription should read MAG BRI (to left) and REX (to right). See http://www.ukdfd.co.uk/ukdfddata/showrecords.php?product=27092&cat=all for the bust and inscription.

Not a small bowl at all although not seening the footring would be a little impossible to say. This is Dr 33 a plain samian cup with graffiti on. Its stated that this is not less skilfully etched. This type of marking is never skilful marked and the lettering is not that clear probably a U and V followed by other letter. Could be the owner of the cup of his name and not a markers mark also from South Gaul due to the large number of white flecks which is common especially in the matrix of the clay or core

I believe this is a 1/4 stuber coin of Clemens August von Bayern, Archbishop of Cologne 1723-61. There is a crowned CAC monogram. The other face consists of '1/4' above 'STVBER' with an unreadable date below. The inscription around this would read (and much is still visible): .CHVR.COLLN.LAND.MVNTZ See

This is a cloth seal from the Dutch city of Haarlem. The arms consist of an upright sword with two mullets (stars) either side and a cross above. The normal inscription around this reads HAERLEMS GOET and several of these letters can be made out in the image. There are many others on the PAS and other databases eg NMS-4311D2, NMS-DE89E0 & NMS-F7E876.

For what I believe is yet another Yorkshire county seal see http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=1874 It would appear to me to be made from the same dies as this seal (HAMP-C2E516). The Bagseals example has been mistakenly identified as relating to Norfolk.

On further analysis this coin is not RIC 274 but RIC 218. This is based on the fact that the reverse inscription appears to read BEAT TRA_QLLITAS

Based on the position of the second half of the obverse inscription and its apparent length, when compared to other similar coins, it would appear that this coin is RIC London 188.

I think this is probably a Hungarian flour seal. The lower part of the inscription seems to read 'HENGERMALOM', the name of a district of Budapest in Hungary in which there were some very large steam powered flour mills. This was a major industry in Hungary during the 19th century. The number '2' on the other face no doubt relates to the grade of this particular type of flour. For a better preserved example see http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=1496 This example has a '0' on the other face, a different grade of flour.

Despite one side of this seal being in English I believe this is a German flour bag seal. Perhaps it was intended for the English market. There are several good examples on the Bagseals website see http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=2793 The 'English' face reads 'NEW PROCESS FLOUR'. The 'German' side in the centre reads 'NEUMUHLEN KIEL'. This can be seen on this seal. The inscription around the edge should read 'BALTISCHE MUHLEHN GESELLSCHAFT'.

The stance of the figure on this knife can be compared with a knife terminating in a youthful representation of Bacchus in the V&A collections (ref. M.949-1926). It is described as being made in the Netherlands in the second quarter of the 17th century, although it is similar to the so-called Stuart enamels probably made in London.
