County: Doncaster
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A post medieval lead alloy two or four-disc cloth seal. Parts of one disc and the central rivet integral to that disc survive. One face of the disc is stamped, on the rivet, with a design of short lines in saltire, perhaps sceptres, or crossed keys.

The seal is bent and torn, and has a cream patina. The suggestion of crossed sceptres would suggest a 17th century date. Alternatively this could be part of a merchants…
