TOKEN

Unique ID: PUBLIC-487281

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

An complete Medieval to Post Medieval unifaced lead alloy sub-circular uniface token of Powell Type 7. The token is decorated on one face with a simple raised grid design; the other face is undecorated. The token measures 18.31 mm in diameter and 2.63 mm thick and weighs 5.37 grams.

Tokens had a wide variety of uses and were easy to manufacture; they are therefore difficult to date specifically outside of secure archaeological contexts. Tokens with simplistic designs had considerable longevity and could date from c. 1250-1800 AD.
