Post Medieval cast lead alloy circular two-faced token. On one side is a raised initial D with a cross bar through it and a pellet behind and on the other side a raised initial E. The token measures 19.6mm in diameter, 2.7mm thick and weighs 5.83grams. 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).
