TOKEN

Unique ID: PUBLIC-253213

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

Cast lead alloy circular uni-faced token. The obverse of the token has a raised quartered design of four regularly spaced lines running from edge to edge and all meeting in the middle. Each quarter has two concentric chevrons with points facing the right angle formed by the quartered design. The reverse is blank. It is 21mm in diameter and 5mm thick. There is a small circular casting sprue.

Lead tokens had a wide variety of uses and were made locally, they are therefore hard to date precisely and could be Medieval or Post Medieval in date (1250-1850 AD).
