Post Medieval lead alloy token, 22mm in diameter and 2mm thick. The object is in fair condition and weighs 6.10grams. The object is circular and has been partially cut through. On one side it has a raised number 1599 flanked by two borders of cross hatching. There is also a pierced hole near the edge next to the start of the number. The otherside has a central motif with curved edges, but it is worn. The style of the numbers suggest they represent a date and that the object is possibly a date tag for something, given the hole.
