Copper alloy pan-weight of uncertain date

The weight is circular and is rectangular sectioned (with a diameter of 15.5mm and a thickness of 3.3mm). The face is decorated a concentric ring and inner depression, possibly turned. The reverse is flat and has three punched indentations, possibly in a triangular arrangement. The surface has a mid-green patina with file marks evident on the underside.
The weight now weighs 2.92g, equivalent to 0.103 ounce and it is possible that the weight was a one-eighth ounce weight under the Mercantile, Avoirdupois or Tower systems (equivalent to 3.65g / 3.55g) or would be heavy for a one-twelfth ounce weight under the Troy or Apothecaries' systems (equivalent to 2.59g).
