I've found that one yesterday. Looks quite interesting, so I though I'll share the photo with you guys.





A nice example of one of Liebig’s Extract of Meat Company Seals,  - http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=12184

and two more from that day.









Sorry for the photos quality.

The first is Dutch customs seal - http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=31&g2_page=46
The second could well be a broken example of the same type of seal.

Not posted for a while - out on permissions a lot though. Any idea on this bag seal found in Fife yesterday?

Thank you very much for that - I presume mid 19th Century?

The arms, consisting of a crowned lion armed and langued, holding in his dexter paw a sword and in the sinister paw seven arrows tight together, were first used in The Dutch Republic of the Seven United Provinces from 1584 until 1796 when revolution replaced it. It was returned in its current form in 1815 as the Lesser Arms of the Netherlands. However the colour change cannot be seen on a lead impression and the only visual difference is the ‘billetty’ (small squares on the background which are only faintly evident on a few of the seals. This means the seals cannot be older than 1815 and were probably unlikely to be still in use after the early 20th century. ... so yeas probably mid 19th century :)

As far as I am aware this is a seal from flax that came from Riga - any further ID would be most welcome.

The best resource for Russian bale seals is Ged Dodd's Peace Haven's project - http://www.peacehavens.co.uk/bshome.htm Also he would like a copy of that and the blank side for his database - https://www.facebook.com/groups/PeaceHavensProject/ Thanks for showing us. http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=31&g2_page=82

There are three similar seals on the Gallery - http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=4765, http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=4762 and http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=11982

As you can see we have not got enough information from them yet to help us find out what they were for. Yours is in excellent condition and could provide the details we need. Is there any chance of a sharper, bigger image please? This might help - http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=22189

Thanks
Stuart
