A complete Post Medieval cast lead alloy sub-circular uniface token of Powell Type 3 . The token is decorated with a segment design, the other face is undecorated. The token measures 18.96 mm diameter and is 1.94 mm thick and weighs 4.88 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 simple designs may be Medieval or Post Medieval in date, c.1250-1800 AD.
