    Heres an old Imperial family crest stamp which I found years ago in an old castle in Germany which was being renovated - Its a stamp used with wax to seal the back of letters etc. Very ornate wood grip, the crest reflects a crown over two individual family crests - Found this in Hessen Germany .

    with my current camera this is about as good as it gets on these small close-ups - I may try later and if it gets any better Ill post it- The seal was found as noted in a old castle in a small town of Alten Buseck, Hessen Germany near Giessen - the castle/Country estate was owned by a Graf(Count).
