Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A complete lead or lead alloy unifaced token of Late Medieval to Early Post Medieval dating (AD 1400 to AD 1800).

The token is sub circular. The obverse design consists of a horizontal line, with a chevron above and below (Probably Powell type 3). The reverse is undecorated.

The token has a diameter of 18.8 mm and is 2.4 mm thick. It weighs 4.5 g.

The token is a light to mid grey colour, with an even surface patina. Abrasion, caused by movement whilst within the plough soil has resulted in a loss of some of the original surface detail.
