Record ID: ESS-6038F9
Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Complete lead token of probable post Medieval date (c. 1500 - 1800). The token is flat and circular, with one face featuring a cross hatch design and a central thick, and slightly raised undecorated band. The opposite face appears plain though the raised band is also present.

Those carrying initials are generally deemed to be Post-Medieval in date (AD 1500 - 1850), those which see…
