Lead Bag Seal a Little ID Conformation

Post by Hawkeyes » Mon Mar 12, 2018 6:54 pm

This small lead bag seal is from my back log of finds that I am slowly sifting through and after a bit of a clean up I found the stamp mark to be like a coin with what looks like William III and Britannia on it which would also put a date to it ?, as I have never seen a bag seal marked this way before I wondered what you guys thoughts were on it and does it look like Will III to you. I know I will be corrected if I'm wrong LOL :-SS
Each disc is 15mm in diameter and is plain on the revers side also unfortunately fell apart ;;z
Marked this way do you thing this could have been a seal on a money bag ??

I suspect a cloth seal rather than a bag seal but the date is about right for the style. ::g

I recently found a similar 2 part one of Queen Anne in absolutely stunning condition. They are wonderous little things and I think this style is very typical of the period. Historic too as within a few decades the home based cloth weaving industry would become the first victim of the Industrial Revolution. ::g

As usual a hive of knowledge on this forum and goes to show its not wise to take a stab at anything but by doing so the world of lead seals has been opened up to me and I can now look at them with more interest ::g
Thanks all for your input ::g
