TOKEN

Unique ID: DEV-EF6CE9

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

A Medieval to Post Medieval lead alloy token of Powell type 7. The token is circular in plan and is undecorated on the reverse. The front is domed or convex; the surface is very worn and there are traces of vertical and horizontal lines forming a criss-cross pattern. Some crude lead tokens of late 17th century date are illustrated in Egan (2005: p170; fig 165). However, as the Devon item did not come from a dateable archaeological context, it can only be given a broad Medieval to Post Medieval date.

Notes:

This record was left unfinished and has promoted in the hope it may be of use to reseachers.
