County: Cambridgeshire

A bifacial lead token of Medieval to Post-Medieval date. The token weighs 7.24g, has a diameter of 22.4mm and thickness of 2.8mm. Both sides of the flan have a beaded border of pellets encircling two capital letters. The pellets have a diameter of c.2.1mm. One side of the flan probably has a letter A and reversed letter G. This could be the result of the 'G' having been formed correctly on the mould resulting in the tokens being produced in that mould having reversed non-symmetrical letters. Alternatively the characters on this side of the flan might possibly be CA. The other side of t…
