Late Medieval to Post Medieval token. Cast in lead this token is damaged and incomplete. A wheel like design comprised of lines radiating out from the centre of the token can be seen on the obverse. The reverse of the token is damaged, with two grooves running across making it unclear if any design was originally present on this face. The token is worn and has a slightly powdery surface. There is a worn break across one edge of the token. It has a diameter of 23.90mm and is 2.74mm thick.
