A lead alloy uniface token of medieval to post medieval date. The token is decorated on one face with worn moulded ridges. The object has a light brown patina. Tokens were easy to make and distributed widely throughout a large period of time; therefore, they are difficult to date precisely. Those decorated to resemble Medieval long cross pennies continued to be circulated throughout both the Medieval and Post Medieval periods and a general date of c. AD 1250-1800 is given. They have a huge range of designs which were not necessarily related to function and could have been used for …
