A two disc cast lead cloth seal of probable post-medieval date. The cloth seal has a diameter of 20.4mm, it is 3mm thick and weighs 4.94g.

The external face of the second (rivetted) disc is moulded with a detailed depiction of a castle or tower. On the external face of the first disc there is an unclear device, possibly an initial. Geoff Egan comments: "This cloth seal is not familiar but may be Continental, perhaps from France or the Low Countries, and probably dates from the sixteen…

The fragmentary first disc from a two disc cast lead cloth seal of probable seventeenth century date. The fragment measures 28.4mm by 23.14mm by 3.5mm and weighs 9.86g. The external face depicts a shield on which there is a upwards pointing sword with two mullets on each side and a cross pattee above. These are the arms of the city of Haarlem in Holland. Around the arms is the legend HAERL[EMS GOET], meaning goods from Haarlem. On the rivet is the number 20, which indicated the length in Dutch ells of the cloth being certified. Around the rivet is the impression of a finely woven cloth.

A two-part cast lead cloth seal of probable late sixteenth or early seventeenth century date. The seal measures 28.61mm by 20.45mm by 3.18mm and weighs 7.26g. The first disc is scratched with letters which appear to read P nig| (very uncertain). The second disc has a crude EB or ER privy mark. The scratches are likely to be the name of an artisan weaver (with the name Night or something similar), while the stamped mark would be the initials of a capital-owning clothier.

Disc 2 from a two-part cast lead cloth seal of probable late fifteenth or early sixteenth century date. The surviving fragment measures 27.71mm by 23.82mm by 3.17mm and weighs 3.23g.

A two-part cast lead cloth seal of probable early sixteenth century date. The cloth seal measures 26.16mm by 23.77mm by 6.84mm and weighs 10.81g. It is corroded and part of the second disc is folded back on itself. The exterior of disc 1 has a large X. It is plausible although unlikely that the X represented the Roman numeral for 10 (perhaps indicating a specification of the length of the cloth in yards or its weight in pounds). Some other coding is more probable. On the exterior of disc 2 (on the rivet) there is a crown over a single, seeded rose. The legend is illegible.
