A Post Medieval cast copper alloy trade weight from the reign of James I (AD 1603 - 1625) or James II (AD 1685 - 1688). The weight is circular and flat with no rim. The front has a central dimple and the back has file marks across it. It is stamped with a Crowned I (for James I or II) at 6 o'clock and an ewer (for the founders company) at 11 o'clock. There may have been sword stamped at 1 o'clock, this area is now very worn. It is 13.7mm in diameter and 3.2mm thick. It weighs 2.93gm. It was probably originally an eighth (0.125oz) of an ounce (two drams) with some weight lost to corrosion.
