Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Wiltshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A post medieval Post Office lead bag seal or an alnage seal dating from AD c 1600-1725. The seal is incomplete and comprises a single bent disc with a section extending out of it which would have created the loop or join to the second disc. The face of the seal depicts a bust of the monarch (possibly Anne) facing right with the legend OF ENG:LAND around it and a circle of pellets surrounding the design. The relief designs on these alnage seals are characterised by fine detail resulting from well engraved dies. The reverse is undecorated.
