    This coin is not AR that I can tell, it is AE.

    Been asking for a few years;

    It seems to me that on the back is written: "Mother of God, help John" ( [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG])

    That was assistance a few years back. Any ideas?

    Closest i have seen , nice job. Not lead though, that would be unusual for a seal. However tbe inscription fits, the mark above the virgin i thought was a test mark.

    I have limited knowledge on seals. Would a AE seal be u usual @dltsrq

    I'm not an expert on seals, though I find them interesting. My guess is that it's a lead alloy. You may be able to find an exact match at DO with a careful search.
