A medieval lead token dating to c AD 1400-1500. The token is decorated on both sides. On one side there is a cross with chevrons possibly in two adjoining quarters and a swirling looped decoration in the two other quarters. On the other side, there is an off centre cross with a double line running through the centre of the offset cross line and lines radiating out to the edges of the token. The dating is based on the similarity of the crude decoration to a silver long cross penny.
