A very interesting cloth seal - possibly quite old (1586?) but I haven't been able to track it down, sorry.

Good Morning
I found this lead what i presume to be bag seal last week.
Its not the most ornate one that I have found but but has an interesting collection of stamped marks on it.
The photographs include a modern 2 pence coin for scale, please does anyone have any idea of an identification and age?
I have added it to a bag seal identification site but have unfortunately not had any feedback yet so hoping someone here may be able to help?
Many thanks for looking.

I was - mind you it's a very similar reply to Andy Williams post except that it looks more like a bag seal than a cloth seal or even a medallion or fancy token?? Hence my lack of a reply on Facebook. I wonder if it was some sort of tally. Try David Powell at the Leaden Tokens Telegraph - https://thetokensociety.org.uk/ltt/

It appear to be a Swiss lead bag seal with four holes. It reads something like 'Schweiz zollvezwut' ?
Any ideas? :Thinking:

Yes I think it is a Swiss customs seal but I have not seen a similar example.
