A lead alloy disc, too worn for any further identification, but it was probably a token or tally therefore dating from the 16th to 18th centuries.


Part of a larger collection purchased from a car boot sale. The seller informed the purchaser that the finds were from the Vale of The White Horse District, mostly around the Wantage area. Since no other provenance about these finds is known their archaeological value is limited, but we are grateful to the current owner recording this collection nonetheless.
