this fabulous fob wax seal appears to be made of steel and the little handle is typical of 18th century fob wax seals. it measures 1 1/8" tall and the matrix measures 3/4" by 7/8"
I'm still looking to learn more about it because a friendly collector suggested maybe it has some tie to King Charles I since there are many other similar commemorative rings and such out there.
this fob seal looks as if it was kept close to its original owner… just look how worn and thin the little loop at the top has become… now I'll keep it close, too!
