A Post-Medieval lead cloth seal, probably issued during the reign of James I to William II (AD 1603-1702). The seal comprises to circular discs joined by a tab at one edge. The opposite edge on both discs is incomplete, indicating that this was possibly a four-disc seal. One disc is decorated with a crowned thistle. The other disc is worn, but an unclear curved line is visible. Compare SOM-166D1D and SUR-17B384 Although no direct parallel has been idenitfied for this seal, the crowned thistle frequently appeared on alnage seals in this period, see for example Egan (1994: 178, no. 141).
