Copper alloy Weight. Cast flat discoid weight with a rim on its upper side and a bevelled base with a central hole suggesting finishing on a lathe. Two stamped marks on the upper surface , a tall crown and a five-pointed star, probably record the checking of the weight by official inspectors, and may mark its use in a commercial setting. The mass indicates this represented one quarter of an averdepois ounce. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1750-1850.

Diameter: 18.0mm, Thickness: 4.3mm, Weight: 7.26gms.
