I found this yesterday on a field that has thrown up a lot of 1800’s items.

I suspect it’s a crimped on wire security seal and destined for the bin, but I wanted to check first...

It looks like a bag seal of some sort. I’m no good with these but hopefully someone will come along with a date and more details :thumbsup:

Lead cloth or bag seal. Wouldn't throw it away yet anyway. :thumbsup:

Pete,

hope you don't mind but I've sent the link to Stuart Elton - bag and cloth seal guru extraordinaire and invited him to the forum.

Thanks Chris...That's very kind of you and I don't mind at all!

I still can't help thinking it's an anti tamper seal off a Victorian 'leccy meter! :P :P

Interesting pattern stamped on it. Does not look like the normal security type utility seals - http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=3147 Difficult but can we have a closeup of the sections top and bottom where it appears to have been brocken?

Hi Stu,

First thanks for signing up...

Looking at the item closely in hand, although there is a seam down the sides, I can't see any gap to indicate a split hence why I thought it was a security seal.
I have taken some extra pics to see if these help...

Thanks Pete - yes it does look like the sort of 'blob' of lead they attach to the end of twisted wire sealing sacks and other items. I'll put it on the Gallery in the 'not a seal' section if that's ok with you and see if anything else comes up. Away for the weekend so hopefully I'll remember to do it on Monday!! :Thinking:
