Unique ID: PUBLIC-324226

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

A complete Post Medieval cast lead alloy sub-circular uniface token of Powell Type 2 . The token is decorated with letters HB which are joined and the other face is undecorated. The token measures 17.85 mm diameter and is 2.25 mm thick and weighs 2.73 grams.

Tokens had a wide variety of uses and were easy to manufacture; they are therefore difficult to date precisely outside of archaeological contexts; those with initials are generally thought to be Post Medieval in date, c.1550-1800 AD.
