A Post Medieval lead alloy uniface token, c. 1550-1800 AD. Powell Type 2. The token is decorated on one face with the initials 'I W' or 'M I'. 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.
