Eagles head facing left, inscription around // rose

<a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tangerm%C3%BCnde">Tangermünde</a> is a historic town on the Elbe River in the district of Stendal, in the northeastern part of Saxony-Anhalt.

Cloth seals from this region often show only the crude head of an eagle rather than the full eagle displayed with a rose in each wing of the town's arms. See Oostveen Textiel Loden 1600-1625 catalogue no. 32-36.

This find along with <a href="http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=35695">BSG.CS.01327</a> and <a href="http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.php?g2_itemId=35692">BSG.CS.01328</a> suggest that Vestfold, Norway was a buyer of diverse German manufactured cloth.
