County: Lancashire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Plain cast copper alloy finger ring. The join is visible but there is no inscription. The ring dates to the eighteenth century and may have been worn by a child or a teenager - the size of this ring suggests this to be the case - as by this time most adults were able to afford gold or silver. Plain hoops were often preferred.

Cast lead token. Obverse depicts long cross with pellets in each quarter. Reverse shows signs of a cross decoration although badly worn. It is unclear as to why lead tokens were produced although they appear numerous in the 17th and 18th centuries (Bailey 1999 page 56). They may have been produced as a form of working class low denomination currency associated with rural areas (Bailey 2000 pages 13-14). Alternative uses may have been for payment of casual workers or gambling (ibid. page 14). This example appears to be of possible French origin and political in nature (ibid…
