See there’s some writing on it, can’t make it out but the style of writing looks 17- 18th century
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Hello everyone! I hope you are all well.

I found this seal yesterday and i just want to know if possible what was it used for? You can read partially whats written on it but nothing specific that rings a bell.

Thank you :)

Found this the other day which I believe is only one half of a cloth/bag seal. You can just make out a rampant lion I think on the front. The back is blank. For size it is 10mm across at its widest point. Had to take the shot on my finger so that I could get the best position to show the image. Any information would be much appreciated especially a rough date.

I tried using the bag seal identifier search but not finding anything. This was found in upstate NY but could possibly be from elsewhere as the area is inhabited by Europeans since the late 17th century. Any help iding would be appreciated.

After much thought I think it is probably is a Russian flax bale seal of the shield and cross with pellets type - http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=3828

Difficult one - could be part of a seal or from several other artifacts. Try All Things Lead - https://www.facebook.com/groups/737531112986629/
