A probable lead alloy forgery based on an inscribed silver unit of the Corieltauvi, possibly imitating ABC 1896 'Vepo ring silver half unit', though the poor definition of the horse in particular is more akin to the discombobulated state of the beast appearing on gold staters; the size, thickness and weight also have more in common with the gold Iron Age coins than the silver. The inscribed silver coinage would bear a date of Haselgrove period 3 phase 8, AD 10-40, but its forgery might rather relate to the period 1990-2010.
