County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete post-medieval lead cloth seal, probably dating to c. AD 1550-1800. Disc-1 of a 2- or 4- part cloth seal. Disc-1 is stamped with an incuse T, whilst an incomplete privy-mark, stamped in low releif survives on the integral rivet. It is c 21.50mm in diameter, 3.0mm thick and weighs 4.9g.

A number of comparable seals are published by Egan (1994: 181-183).
