Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Blackburn with Darwen
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead weight of medieval or post-medieval date (c. 1300 - 1700 AD). The weight has been formed by pressing a coin into the surface of a circular disc of lead. Unfortunately, the impression is shallow and the surface of the object is worn, which means that the coin cannot be identified with any certainty. The size and indication of gothic lettering suggests that the coin will have been of late medieval to post-medieval date. The object has a white patina. It is 35.07mm in diameter and 8.06mm in thickness. The diameter of the coin is 28.15mm. The object weighs 61.24g.
