Post Medieval cast lead alloy circular unifaced token (1500-1850 AD). The token has been cast with a raised design on the obverse and a flat, undecorated reverse. The raised design on the front surface features the initials I D on either side of a central pellet. The token measures 18.13mm in diameter, 2.8mm thick and weighs 3.6 grams. Lead tokens had a wide variety of uses and were made locally; they are therefore hard to date precisely but those with initials are thought to be Post Medieval in date (1500-1850 AD).
