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 is uncertain, possibly a bird (possibly Powell type 18). The reverse is undecorated. It has been partially folded in half.

The token has a diameter of 24.0 mm and is 1.8 mm thick. It weighs 4.8 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.
