Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

A Post Medieval lead alloy uniface token, c. 1550-1800 AD. Powell Type 2. The token is decorated on one face with the initials 'P T'. The other side of the token is undecorated.

Lead tokens had a wide variety of uses and were easy to manufacture and distribute; they are therefore difficult to date precisely, but those with initials are thought to date to the Post Medieval period.
