WEIGHT

Unique ID: HESH-0B4ED4

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Incomplete cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable Medieval - Post Medieval date (1350 - 1700). The weight is broadly circular in plan and regular in cross section. Both faces seems to have some form of decoration although this is indistinct. There is also evidence for an outer raised ridge to the weight. On the upper face there is also a single irregular punch / stamp impressed in the surface. Due to the corrosion and patina of the weight this mark cannot be accurately read. The weight is a mid grey colour with an even, but slightly corroded and abraded, patina which covers all surfaces. The weight measures 34.4mm in diameter and is 8mm thick. It weighs 20.06 grams or 0.71ozs (310 grains).
