A two-disc cloth seal probably from Norfolk / Norwich.

A seal with a very similar N but crowned and with three pellets to the left is shown in Egan, Geoff, Cloth Seals, p.43-86 in Salisbury & South Wiltshire Museum Medieval Catalogue, Part 3, ed. Peter Saunders, 2001, no.21, Fig.20. It is identified, along with no.22 (probable large Lombardic N) as being a Norfolk / Norwich seal.

This seal was initially confused with the seals of Naarden.
