A cast copper alloy toy miniature canon of late Post-Medieval date (17th-19th century). These models were produced as complete working models of their larger counterparts.

Two trunnions, which are round in section, project from a collar midway along the barrel.

Possibly a Post Medieval lead alloy forged coin or perhaps a weight. It may be a lead alloy core that originally had a coating to give it the impression of a higher value silver or gold coin. For example ryals, triple unites, five pounds, half-crowns etc. would be the same diameter though most would be somewhat lighter. Possibly dates to between c1583 and c1850 AD. The diameter is 34mm and weight is 27.24g.
