An incomplete, cast lead cloth seal dating to the late medieval to post-medieval period. The seal consists of two circular lead discs which would have been attached to each another, via the now broken sprue. One side has moulded lettering which has been partially worn off but M E [-] O can still be seen. Both sides have raised decoration; one is unclear while the other depicts a crowned fleur-de-lis. The internal faces are undecorated. The lead surface is a light greyish-white colour.

Small lead cloth seal. The object was probably a four-part seal; there are signs of a breakage on the second disc. There are two discs surviving; the first disc has the rivet that would have been fitted into the fourth disc (missing), this would have had a perforation to provide a means for attachment. The obverse of the first disc is not decorated. The second disc, and only other surviving part of this object, has an obverse design of a crown with three possible thistles emerging. Below the crown are three, possibly four letters, possibly reading FSAO. The reverse of this disc…

Lead disc, probably one of the inner discs of a four-part cloth seal. The disc is flat and circular, with two sprues, one either side. One surface is decorated with a crowned bust facing forwards, similar to the busts featured on medieval coins. It is therefore possible that this seal is late medieval in date.

Lead cloth seal bearing a shield of Leeds. The object is circular in plan, slightly bent, with the remains of a loop on one side. The face of the object shows a fleece suspended on a cord within a shield with a bi-concave top. The outer border of the face has beaded decoration. There are indistinguishable scratch marks on the reverse of the seal. The reverse was not photographed due to an oversight at the event at which this object was recorded.
