A fragment of a lead cloth seal, dating from the 16th - 17th Century. Only about 50% of the seal survives. The traders' mark is still partially visible on the front surface. It takes the form of a letter G, with a scroll below it and up the middle of the seal. Presumably a second letter would have been visible on the right, but this has broken off. The reverse seal features another letter which is not that clear, possibly an I or L. Similar seals can be seen in Egan, p181.
