    I believe this is not a lead token but is one half of a lead Kosher sealing. The letters are Hebrew and read 'Kosher'. This type of seal has two halves joined with a lead strip. For complete examples see www.bagseals.org ref: 749 but the site has others as well. The British Museum also has images of complete examples eg 1987.0607.5. These seals were attached to meat that had been ritually killed and prepared according to the Jewish customs.
