Post medieval copper alloy trade weight, probably of late 17th century date

The weight is stamped with a crowned W, probably over the letter M, probably for William III and Mary II (1689 -1694), a sword and ewer indicating London. The weight now weighs 25.3g, equivalent to 0.8924 ounces and would originally have been a one-ounce weight. The surface is worn and has a mid to dark green patina.
