Post Medieval cast lead alloy circular unifaced token . On one side is a raised initial S with a pellet above, below and to each side. The other side is blank. The token measures 17.9mm in diameter, 2.0mm thick and weighs 3.06 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).
