A uniface cast lead alloy token of medieval to post medieval date (c. 1400 - c. 1650). The decorated face shows a raised, open petal hexafoil with pellets between the petals (Baylis type 79, Petals and Pellets). There is a raised circumferential rim and the token has been pierced (hole is 3.9 mm) slightly off-centre. The piercing has caused a split running to the rim. The whole surface has a pale buff patina.

Fletcher (2005) suggests that geometric patterns appear post 1400, but notes that the open-petal 'daisy wheel' design persists for many centuries, from 13th to 19th.
