Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A complete but worn copper alloy cup-shaped trade weight of the post-medieval period. There are no makers' or issuers' marks or stamps visible. There is the remains of a concreted white material within the weight. This is likely to be a single example from a nested set of weights of differing sizes which were used to weigh gold and silver in the form of coin, small objects or scrap metal or other precious materials. Similar weights are illustrated in Biggs p.16 and are dated to the 16th - 18th century.

An unidentified 17th century trade token. Trade tokens were issued between 1648 and 1672 at a time when there was little low denomination coinage being issued by the crown. As a result traders and business proprietors began issuing tokens as an alternate coinage with equivalent denominations of a farthing, half penny or penny. Such trade tokens rarely travel far from their place of issue and provide an insight to the trade of the time. In 1672 regal copper coinage was introduced and the trade tokens were then banned ( Besly, E. 1997 Loose Change: A Guide to Common Coins and Medals Nat…
