Seal Crimping Tools

        

   These are old brass crimping pliers for seals .. they have two hard faced interchangeable dies .. one fitted in each side.

 Each flax inspector had their own die and each Grower/Owner/Agent had their own die positioned on opposite sides of the pliers ..

Both dies were removable and interchangeable
