An attempt to make this decoration appear to be symmetrical has been made however, close examination confirms that the incised design is not symmetrical. A single continuous line forms a border approximately parallel to the edge of the crescent shape. Within this crescentic field cur…

Object type: JETTON
Broad period: MEDIEVAL

Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete and bent Medieval jetton. To date, it has not been possible to precisely identify this particular jetton type. However, this example contains features similar to other French jetton types struck during the reign of Charles VII in the thirteenth century AD. Only approximately half of this jetton survives. On the obverse side of the flan the jetton survives from the 6 o'clock to the 12 o'clock position with a relatively straight cut or break across the centre of the flan. One and a half fleur de lis are present in the central field. If the missing half was symetrical the d…

An incomplete copper-alloy artefact, probably a strap fitting of 'strap loop without rivets' type dating to the Medieval period, c.AD1150 - 1400.

A copper-alloy pedestal type seal matrix in the shape of a flat-topped shield. The top of the shield has a width of 16.8mm. The artefact has a length of 18.8mm, the lower two angles gently curving down to a tapered rounded blunt point.
