We go seal hunting for 200 year old Russian flax bale seals - not this cutie pie.

Free Identification Service

Seal Numbers 1800 - 1899

This is for the identification of 18/19th century Russian Flax/Hemp lead bale seals by Ged Dodd, director of the PeaceHavens Project .. Our database is already the largest in the world but we need more please, every new seal helps the accuracy of the database .. For identification please send large photos of your seal, both sides, your name and where it was found to ged.dodd@blueyonder.co.uk

 

  Because we have not physically seen the seals from "Museums & Other Sites" we can not vouch for their 100% accuracy. The soft lead letters are easily distorted which makes the Cyrillic alphabet very difficult to read and mistakes are common.  Russian flax bale seals are the "bulla" type - a disc with 2 tunnels  from side to side through which string or wire is passed and crimped tightly to impress the seal. Tubular seals are a piece of ordinary lead piping flattened when impressing the seal.

 For a daily forum on Russian flax bale seals please visit and join our group  The PeaceHavens Project
All Seals which are not Russian flax bale seals visit our companion group  The Lead Bag Seal Identifier
