TOKEN

Unique ID: BERK-A90DC4

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

A lead alloy token or tally, with a septfoil design around a central pellet on one face, with the other face being too worn for further idenitification. The token also appears to be damaged, possibly miscast. This token probably dates to the 17th /18th century.

Notes:

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.
