TOKEN

Unique ID: SUSS-25F306

Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Post Medieval cast lead-alloy uni-face circular token, 1500-1850 AD. The token has the raised initials TP on one side. The reverse appears to have a raised pellet towards one edge but this could possibly be a casting flaw. The token measures 18.2 mm in diameter, 1.9 mm thick, and weighs 3.84 grams.

Lead tokens were locally made and had a wide variety of uses; they are therefore hard to date precisely but those with initials are thought to be Post Medieval in date.
