Post Medieval cast lead alloy circular unifaced token (1500-1850 AD). On one side are the raised initials, I L seperated by a pellet, and the other side is blank. The token measures 16.9mm in diameter, 5.6mm thick and weighs 6.40 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).
