A fragment of a post-medieval lead-alloy cloth seal probably dating 1600-1700. Only a portion of one disc remains, with half of it broken off so it is now more semi-circular in shape. It still has a slight protrusion opposite the broken edge where the integral connecting stud would have originally been sited. Perpendicular to this protrusion is a letter 'V' stamped into the metal. There is no other design and the surface is smooth. The back is rough so may have had a design which has now been worn away. It seems to have been manufactured somewhat irregularly, being much thicker at the…
