These are very difficult to tie down - 17th century is the best bet but anywhere between the late 1500's and early 1700's would not be surprising!

Thanks

Tom

Yes - spot on with your ID Tom. The London Dyers' Guild occupied the Thames north bank between Queenhythe Dock and London Bridge in the 17th century. Among the lanes where their workshops were situated were Old Swan Lane and Anchor Lane, which makes me think that your anchor seal above might be a London Dyer's seal also. Here is a Swan Lane one with the full Dyers' Guild arms (poorly) displayed on the other side - http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.ph ... emId=12572

That's an interesting one - http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.ph ... emId=22943
The second shows the cross in circle radiant - a depiction of the Garter Star, which can be found in the centre of the cruciform shields of larger silver coins struck from 1662 onwards. - http://www.bagseals.org/gallery/main.ph ... emId=21053

Recovered, today, from a hill on the Worcestershire/ Warwickshire border.
Never had much luck in identifying them
