Here's something interesting for you guys, most have seen them at one time or another and didn't know what they were looking at.

BAIL SEALS

BALE SEALS WERE ANOTHER ITEM VERY PLENTYFULL WHEN DIGGING ON MAJOR RIVER BANKS WHERE ITEMS WERE BEING TRANSPORTED FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD. THE BALE SEAL WAS USED IN SEALING AN ITEM FOR SHIPMENT DURING THE EARLIEST TRADE THROUGH THE END OF THE WESTWARD MOVEMENT.


BALE SEALS CAN BE FOUND IN REFERENCE BOOKS SUCH AS THE NEUMANN'S COLLECTORS ENCYCLOPEDIA OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION AND OTHER COLONIAL ERA BOOKS. THIS IS A "BALE SEAL CHART" FROM NEUMANN'S BOOK.




EARLY GROUPING OF OLD BALE SEALS FOUND NEAR PAOLI, PENNSYLVANIA IN 1930'S. BELIEVED TO DATE BACK TO OR BEFORE THE WAR OF 1812 OR EARLIER.
