Lead artefact for ID please

Post by Giz » Sun Jul 16, 2017 10:44 pm

Hi all, spent an enjoyable evening detecting hardly a breathe of wind, signals were hard to come by in fact I doubt I could find the Eiffel Tower :D finds wise only this, made of lead and has a diameter of 15mm and is 6mm wide, I can't make out what is written on either side. Using my trusty Deus fast programme. I look forward to your thoughts and thanks for looking. ::g

I'm outside Old Trafford and there's a guy burning small effigies of Rooney and selling them to fans. Oh, hang on. It's a baked potato stand.

I've bounced your post to Stuart Elton (all things seals). I'm sure he'll be along soon.

Hi Giz - interesting bag seal - could I have the full size image, as it comes from your camera please (then I can enlarge it with full definition). Will probably be able to make out the letters then. Send images to stuarteltonstuartelton@gmail.com please
