I tried this chart but it didn't match. I've tried for several days trying to find a matching rune chart on the internet with no luck. I've tried, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian, Viking and others.

Sorry..I can't help. But, this has to be the most, or one of the most esoteric letter seals ever created.

Definitely esoteric! There's a couple of characters which don't make much sense. A unicode transliteration, where these characters are indicated by square brackets, goes as follows:

HID : KONUNKLIKAE : NOR[]AE : FORKFR[]THAE : F[]LAEK

Anyone offer anything better? The second word looks suspiciously like kongelig, meaning royal in Danish. It's modern archaeology!
