Tuck and Seal Letter Lock

Another interesting demonstration of period correspondence from the Letterlocking Videos channel on YouTube.  This time it's a recreation of the traditional tuck and seal technique used by poet Phillis Wheatley in a 1772 letter to her friend Obour Tanner.  The seal is relatively simple, making it perfect for in-game prop letters.  On interesting tidbit I came across is that the use of wafers is only appropriate for missives to friends and those of equal or lower class.  Messages to those higher on the social scale required a wax seal.

The Mad God

Triangular Letter

Why would someone send a triangular letter?  Because they're a Mason.

The Letterlocking Channel has an interesting look at the folding technique used for an invitation to a Masonic event in 1796.  Beyond the relevance for historical tabletop RPGs, this would be a neat quirk for the letters from an NPC.  It is, of course, needlessly complex, but that's one of the reasons it's cool.
