Post medieval copper alloy trade weight of 17th century date.


The quarter ounce trade weight is complete, with a few damaged edges, measuring 19.5mm in diameter, 3.4mm in thickness and weighing 6.05g. The raised edge around the stamped inner area is 2mm wide and 0.6mm high. The weight is stamped with a sword (the City of London Guildhall mark) a ewer (the London Founder's Company mark) and a crowned 'C' which would indicate it was issued during either the reign of Charles I (1625-1649) or Charles II (1660-1685).
