Star of David on a Seal Stamp from Bavaria

Pictures are courtesy of Mike Espenschied (c), a metal detectorist in Bavaria, Germany. He recently found a wax seal stamp dating to the 1300-1400s with the Star of David and possibly a swan, phoenix or maybe a dragon as the image on the stamp. It may be related to beer breweries in his local area. Readers who want to help Mike Espenschied to learn more about the seal are invited to comment at the bottom of this post.
