Silver coin. A possibly milled and very worn coin, with marks suggesting it has formerly been folded as a keepsake. The mass - with due allowance for heavy wear - does not make it seem likely this was a sixpence, the most commonly folded coin, but perhaps a smaller denomination. Other than signs of creasing, no detail remains on either side of the coin. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1690-1700

Diameter: 20.3mm, Weight: 1.52gms
