A incomplete probable cast lead alloy token dating from about the Medieval period. It is a sub circular disc, decorated on both faces. The obverse shows a crudely formed short cross inside a central circle with pellet-shaped terminals and a single central pellet; there also to be one or two outer plain borders which appear to overlap each other, close to one edge. The reverse has complex but unidentified decoration. It has a cross potent at the top, a cross with pellet terminals at each side and what looks like a letter F on the left. There is also a triangular object on the right which is hatched with vertical lines, and a horizontal line across the top from which two semicircles project upwards. There also have vertical lines across them. The object has been worn and damaged; there is a sub rectangular hole through the flan, with a crack extending to the nearby outer edge; it has an uneven creamy brown and grey patina. Although the decoration on the reverse is unidentifiable, its style suggests a probable Medieval date (1200 - 1400).
