A complete cast copper alloy half-ounce trade weight of post-medieval date. It is circular in shape with a raised rim around the outside edge of the upper face. The centre of the upper face has the crowned letter G at approximately 8 o'clock, the sword of St Paul ( City of London guildhall mark) at 1 o'clock and the ewer at 6 o'clock. The ewer was stamped on approved weights by the London Founders Company between 1590-1826. The crowned letter is the royal cypher - in this case G for George I to IV (Biggs 1992, 50), c. AD 1714-1826.
