An incomplete cast lead cloth seal, probably issued during the reign of Queen Anne. This disc was probably part of a four-disc seal from the series featuring a monarch's head.

The disc bears a female bust facing left, that of Queen Anne surrounded by the inscription: FIDEI DEFEN (Defender of the Faith). The side with bust has a shiny buff patina and the rear side is plain and has a rough surface with a buff patina. Contemporary cloth sea…
