Cloth Seal, Colchester Dutch Community Seal, Crown Bay, 1571 onward

Cloth Seal, Colchester Dutch Community Seal, Crown Bay, 1571 onward, Image & Held by Mike Patrick.
Obtained as part of a general auction lot, 47mm.

Missing // three crowns on a shield, (DVYT)S COLC(HESTE)R
100 (CRONE) around

The rove disc from a two-disc, double rivet, Colchester Dutch community 100 crown bay seal.

See p.104, Egan's Phd 1987, "There is great variety in this group - indeed, it would be rash to claim that any two examples not examined together are definitely from the same dies. The basic devices are: three coronets (of ten represented with the arches of crowns) in ornately-shaped shield, 15 71 to sides, DVYTS COLCHESTER 100 CRONE [i. e. 'Dutch Colchester one hundred crown'] around // griffin, usually segreant [i. e. rampant], but occasionally passant, DVYTS COLC(H)ESTER BAYE 15(71) around."
