Went back to the mill pond for a few bites. Bit of poison Ivy and few keeper.
The lead seal reads J Hustler & Bro. Manufacturers
On the back are the numbers. I haven't had the chance to research the seal yet.
I also managed to get a little cuff button and a complete turtle shell.

I can't imagine it would change any unless an outside force does it. Lead is way more stable than pewter that dries out and can crack or cracks get worse. If you were concerned that it could break by handling it or whatever, you could use the elmer's glue button method on the back to give it a little strength. Personally I would just display it and not handle it much.
You're opinion is respected IP, thanks for the input one this find.
Not a everyday one for me.
Does the anchor style relate to date/era?

Honestly I have no idea, but it's definitely a nice seal. I have a good collection of earlier French ones but strangely only one decent early British.

All I have gotten around here is R/R seals it seems. A few others but not a common find on the homesteads it seems. Being on a trade canal and having a warehouse on the property bought in lots of stuff for the company store(s) and surrounding commerce.

Jim,
Maybe you can trade your lead seal for some Spanish silver....do you think Bart will bite.....:laughing7::laughing7::laughing7:
My chances finding another seal like this isn't good.
My chances of finding a ship wrecks Cobb, isn't good either.
Sounds like a even chance
But I will keep the seal.

As everyone else already said, nice seal. But the question I want answered is what did the turtle ring up as on your detector?:icon_scratch::laughing7:

Cool Pepperj. I don’t know if you have all your questions answered or if this helps, but I found something.
