Nice variety Tony
Uncanny that you found a lead seal , as i have found a few on a couple of my recent hunts
I cant make out anything identifiable on mine
But found this interesting info

Here is the close ups of your coin,
I can make out a 4 on the right

I see a line going down to right of middle, and no high crown at all in the middle top.

here's a sequence of old head coins going from great condition down to the last coin which is yours once again again

your coin

I think you can see it is the same type from the progression of wear as shown.

Queen Victoria
Old Head
goes from
1893 - 1901
Because I can make out the 4 on the right hand side part of the date, your coin must be1894.
