Lead uniface token of medieval to early post-medieval date (c. 1250 - 1600 AD).

The object is 23.34mm in diameter, 3.81mm in thickness and weighs 11.97g.

Complete Post-Medieval, sub-circular, uniface, lead alloy token dating from AD 1600-1800. This is a Powell type 1 token. The obverse face has a six-petalled flower and central nipple.

They are therefore very difficult to date, but those with initials are thought to date to the Post Medieval period. The length is 36mm, the width is 30mm and the weight 21.12g.
