Record ID: DUR-A37196
Object type: SHOT

A complete lead shot ball of Post-Medieval date (AD 1640-1750). The object has a circumferentially running casting seam and a projecting casting spru.

Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Gateshead
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete lead token dating to the post medieval period, c. AD 1500 to 1850. The object is circular in plan and flat with a diameter of 24.86 mm. On one side of the object is a raised motif in the shape of an anchor. On the reverse of the object is a sexfoil motif which is again raised.
