Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find waiting to be validated
A complete Post Medieval cast unifaced lead token, c. AD 1550-1800. Powell Type 2. The token is inscribed with a letter E, a pellet and then either a reverse C or a crescent; the other face is undecorated. The token measures 21.24mm in diameter and is 3.34mm thick and it weighs 9.3 grams. Lead tokens were easy to produce and widely circulated; therfore they are difficult to date precisely. Those with letter initials are thought to date to the Post Medieval period and are given a general date of c. 1550-1800 AD.
