Seal matrix (electrotype) (reverse), of Burgh of Aberdeen

This is the reverse of an electrotype of a seal matrix of the Burgh of Aberdeen. The original bronze matrix dates from 1430 and is the second seal of the Burgh of Aberdeen.

The reverse shows the front gate and walls of a castle. Within this is a depiction of the miracle of St Nicolas restoring three youths to life. The saint is in the centre, with his left hand raised and a crosier in his right.
