Bag Seal Mystery

The mystery lead bag seal. Tried to pinpoint exactly where it came from via online sites filled with proper experts. Bag seal experts. I know! Anyway, as @donald_morrison says, below, we think it is a Dutch customs seal, with the Lesser Arms of the Netherlands, as seen in the left hand photo. The other side we think says LEAIDEN 5385, but it’s a new one to all who’ve seen it. Can any of you experts out there help? With thanks to Stuart F Elton from Peacehavens Project. #clothseal #bagseal #leadseal #dutch #netherlands #leaiden #leiden #holland #dutchcustoms #mudlark #mudlarking #diaryofalondonmudlark #mudlarkart #thames #tidal #history #heritage
