Marcellus II (1555) Papal Seal

Marcellus II (1555) Papal Seal Photo

Marcellus II. 1555. Lead Seal – Bolla Papale (40.4mm, 48.3 g). Ss. Paul and Peter, facing slightly right and left, respectively, each within beaded halo; cruciform scepter between: SPASPE above / MAR/CELUS •/ • PP • II • (Ω over PP). Lots of detail with substantial tufts of cord.

Exceedingly rare seal--there are no auction results in a database covering the last 15 years--of the Pope who reigned for just 22 days. Marcellus II, the great reformer who could have been!
