Probable silver ingot. Rectangular-sectioned with irregular but unbroken terminals and multiple shallow transverse hammer marks on the long faces. Measuring 13 x 6 x 5mm. Weight 1.77g / 27.4 grains.

The weight of 27.4 grains corresponds very closely with 1 avoirdupois dram (27.3grains) although this is probably a coincidence. The hammer marks may indicate a Late Saxon date.
