Hi Stu

Have been looking for an ID on this for a few days on the bag seal site and other places with no luck
It has a Fleur de lis on both sides although off centre on one side.

It has a hole and wonder if it may have been worn as a pendant?

Looks like a tubular cloth seal - similar to these (3rd and fourth row). The fleur-de-lise is found mainly on many English, French and Italian cloth seals. Not seen this one before. Cloth seals often have secondary uses as tokens and medallions but often holes are made in them perhaps to reattach them to a remaining piece of the same cloth they have been cut from or fallen off of.
This the best medallion use of an old cloth seal I have seen - below (see http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=3236)

Hi, could some one please give me a rough age on these lead bag seals. Three found pretty close together today.
Thank you 👍🏼

Some more pics may help also of the other side. :thumbsup:
Very generally the first looks oldest and others late 19th century onwards. :Thinking:

My guess is there will be a cornucopia on the other side (of the last one at least) - http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.ph ... emId=38538

Thank you, you are spot on, I can now see the cornucopia

Hi!

Could anyone give me any info on this item please. I'm hoping it is a bag seal (as it would be my first) and it has some age to it.

My thanks

That’s an interesting one. Do you have a side view? Or maybe tell us if it has holes at the top and/or bottom or if there’s a loop type tag at the top. It has the feel of a cloth seal but it might just be damage :D

Thanks for getting back to me 🙂

Does this help?

If not I will have to go back to the garage in the morning and try and get some better shots.

:lol: Nothing wrong with the photo but I think it’s too late for my brain to work anything out! Maybe you can describe instead? Does it look like there was something going through it (think a string going through a solid piece of lead)? Or does it look like two lead discs linked by a piece of lead and squashed together?

I suspect it’s a solid one - so a bag seal - from your photo :thumbsup:
