TOKEN

Unique ID: WMID-093301

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

A complete cast lead alloy unifaced token of probable post medieval dating (1600 to 1800 AD).

The token is broadly circular in plan. The upper face (obverse) exhibits a raised Cross, with pellets between each ray. The lower face (reverse) is plain.

The token is a mid grey colour, with an even surface patina. It demonstrates a small degree of abrasion, caused by movement whilst within in the plough soil. A couple of small notches have been removed from the edge, probably by a plough.

The token measures 16.4mm in diameter and is 3.7mm thick. It weighs 4.0 grams.
