Hi all, lately i have been finding lots of these bag seals. In fact 31 of them to date all on the same field.

Most are different , but the last couple are of this type below.

A.R.Richou  Frere    Angers   , and on the reverse  BM

Can anyone help to identify the company , and the contents of the bag.

I have surfed the internet but had no joy, any help much appreciated.

The only thing i have found so far is that Angers is a place in France and Frere is a French surname  Huh Huh

Thanks for your time  Ace  Wink

Hi Ace, they are some nice  bag seals, Ok the name Richou is not the most uncommon name in France but in  Angers in the Anjou region there are only a few and this one in particular would fit with what you are looking for.
they were or are a very wealthy family, looking at there profession I would say the sacks contained eitherSeed, flour or grain for milling. (so could you be on the site of an old mill?) the"A.R. Richou Brothers" denote they are 19thC. the A.R stands for Alexander (II) (1835-1897) and René-Eugene (1841-1900).
Hope this helps

By the way "Frere" isn't a name it means brothers.

Hey thanks Geoff mate, thats excellent info fella, hope to research the area properly, and what i do know, is that there was a Mill not too far from the find place, so its all fitting in.
