Any chance that you could have a look at this chunky seal which came out on a recent club dig in East Kent. It has the remains of at least one wire through it so I presume that it is a bag seal of some sort. It looks 19th or 20thC to me.

The raised script seems to be SF on one side with a squiggle across the top and some symbols on the other side. I suspect that it it might be a locally produced one so I'm not really expecting it to be pinned down precisely but it would be helpful to know if you've seen anything remotely like it.

Cheers

Fred
Great to hear from you Fred. I think you have IDed it as closely as I can - agree with all that. This is the closest on the Gallery but deffo not this one - http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=3886

Any rallies lined up for this year?

Thanks

So far only the Medway History Finders Rally on Sheppey over the August Bank Holiday. Mostly because it's an easy drive for me so I don't have to suffer camping (ever again :D ).

Let me know if your doing one and I'll try and meet up with you. :thumbsup:
