TOKEN

Unique ID: DENO-147C96

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

A Medieval to Post Medieval cast lead alloy uniface circular token. The token has a raised design of an intial or intials, probably intended to be a single letter W (designed as two overlapping letter Vs). There is a single raised pellet both above and below the letter. The reverse is blank.

Lead tokens are difficult to date precisely and could be Medieval to Post Medieval in date (1250-1800 AD). The majority of lead tokens are thought to date to the seventeenth century or later, c. 1600-1800, especially those which depict lettering or initials, this token is therefore dated in line with this thinking.
