Help identify this royal monogram!
 
https://scontent-b-fra.xx.fbcdn.net/...42962203_n.jpg

I recently found this by metal detecting and could not find a matching monogram on the Web. I am fairly sure this is Swedish. It was found in Estonia. I am trying to identify the family. Could anyone help me out tracing this monogram down?

Thank you!

If it is indeed a Swedish royal monogram, it looks quite similar to the monogram of Prince Erik, Duke of Västmanland.

what a fabulous find!!! How exciting!! It looks like a seal that they used to drip way on a letter and seal it with that!!! I hope you find out who it belongs to. keep us posted. good luck.

To me the crown over the monogram looks similar to the heraldic crown used by swedish counts. Since Estonia was a part of Sweden between 1561-1721 it's not impossible that it has a swedish origin.

Bumping this in the hopes of someone familiar with Swedish monograms will read this!
