Object type certainty: Certain
Workflow status: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation

Copper alloy weight. Cast discoid weight of plano-concave section with a rim around its concave upper side. Inspection counter-stamps appear on this side: a dagger [for the City of London], a crowned C [indicating Royal inspection regimes between 1625 and 1685]; and a device resembling an ornate teapot [not identified]. The present mass might suggest this to represent three [slightly overweight] drams of 1.77gms under the averdepois system, though this uneven value does not sit happily in a series wherein 16 drams equal an ounce. Abraded and rubbed on its upper and lower surfaces. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1625-1700.

Diameter: 21.7mm, Thickness: 2.6mm, Weight: 5.60gms
