A single copper plate weighing 180 grams, without thicker rims. Engraved shallowly and badly damaged by corrosion. A seal was originally attached to the proper right (of the first page). All that remains is a circular projection with a corroded hole in the middle. The seal would have been soldered here and may have been 4.5 cm in diameter.
