And yet another in the Warner Collection (M29-1950) at the V&A.

Quite a large, practically square (8" x 7.1/2") piece from just below the
inscription band.

Entirely filled with the Royal Arms of Charles II., rather blurred, perhaps
from being impressed twice.

RWMC observes it is apparently from the old 3/4 at Broad Blunsdon, Wilts,
Rober Neale, Burford, 1675; recast by Warner 1913.
