Four disc lead late Medieval- Post Medieval cloth seal, unused, dating to 1400- 1800. It is complete, and has been folded in half, but not put together, and not stamped with any design. Disc 1 has the conical stud on the reverse, which fits through the hole of Disc 4. The seal has been folded at the connecting strip between Discs 2 and 3. Each of the discs is sub-circular. Without any markings on it is not possible to date this example more closely as cloth seals were used over a long period of time.

Lead cloth seal, 16-17th century in date. It is part of a two disc cloth seal with the two discs being pressed together. They are broken on all edges, originally having been circular in plan. The front disc has a stamped design in the form of a hanging sheep. There is a legend around the outside although most is now missing it reads ...ED ....ROSS* A hanging sheep or the golden fleece is the symbol for Leeds and it seems likely that this is a seal from a company/ person involved in the cloth trade in Leeds. Possibly someone named Ross.

Lead Post Medieval sack seal. Complete circular seal with two circular discs and the folded attachment loop. One disc has a pineapple with a plume on top in relief. The other side has a central circular depression, over which is an A in relief with an annulet to right and below. The A stands for Augsburg, Germany. Seals from the fustians of Augsburg are among the most common and widespread of all recorded imports in England according to Egan. This example is similar to nos. 308-10 in his book 'Lead Cloth Seals and Related Items in the British Museum'.
