It lead backed , Copper Front , 67mm . When Benedict, fourth Lord Baltimore, embraced the Anglican faith, full control of Maryland was returned in 1715 to the formerly Catholic Calvert family. Use of the Great Seal of 1648 was resumed on all official acts of government. The obverse, showing Lord Baltimore in an equestrian pose, originally bore on its border the name of Cecilius, second Lord Baltimore. Sometime after Charles, third Lord Baltimore, became proprietor in 1675, the seal was re-cut substituting the Latin "Carolus" for the former Cecilius. Found a little info. that this piece was a Printers type Baltimore City Seal from an 1880 Sesqui-Centennial presentation set by John Ryan & Company Type Founders Baltimore Maryland Features an equestrian figure of the Lord Proprietary arrayed in complete armor and holding a drawn sword; a horse wearing caparisons adorned with the family coat of arms for Lord Baltimore; and on the ground below the equestrian figure, a sparse growth of grass on sandy soil and a few small blue and yellow flowers. The circle surrounding the obverse of the Great Seal of Maryland contains the Latin inscription "Caecilius Absolutus Dominus Terrae Mariae et Avaloniae Baro de Baltemore", which means "Cecil Absolute Lord of Maryland and Avalon Baron of Baltimore", referring to Lord Baltimore's first settlement in the new world, on the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland.
