A very worn lead alloy discoidal object with circular band, possibly a Medieval or Post Medieval cloth or related seal. The seal itself is discoidal with completely broken and misshapen circumference; it is possible this was originally circular in plan.

Cast lead seal of cloth seal type with a central hole. Shows evidence of being bent in the middle. Late Medieval/Early Post-Medieval in date.
