A complete lead alloy token or tally of post-medieval date. The token has been cast and the moulding spur can still be seen clearly. It is also evident that the mould was not correctly aligned at the two faces of the token do not align. The token has moulded decoration on both faces, one with the initials 'L C' while the other side has a long cross dividing the token into quarter; the top two quarters each has a letter, again a repeat of the initials ( L C ) but the wear to the bottom two quarters makes any marks / initials / date hard to decipher. These tokens generally date to the 17th or early 18th century AD.
