Unique ID: LVPL-EFB8B3

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

A complete but worn, cast copper alloy trade weight of Post Medieval (18th century dating).

The weight is circular with a raised rim on the top of the weight. The top has been decorated with a series of concentric incised circles. No stamps or countermarks are visible. The base is plain and undecorated, apart from a recessed circular depression at the centre.

The weight is a mid to dark green colour, with an uneven surface patina. The edges of the weight demonstrate signs of abrasion, resulting in the loss of some of the surface patina.

The weight has a diameter of 19.01mm and is 3.83mm thick. It weighs 6.0 grams (0.21oz).

The weight is probably a quarter ounce weight of 18th Century dating.
