Its the shield for London and it looks like it says London at the top. Can you make out any other writing? It may have been something from the London markets.

I found something a little bit similar, different design on the top but otherwise flat disc, underside unmarked, rim a bit turned down in places. The experts here concluded not a seal, and my FLO said he thought it was a cap from something (and wasn't interested any further :() so I will be interested to follow this discussion!
