A series of complete cast lead alloy circular uniface tokens, probably dating to Post Medieval period (c. 1500-1850 AD): Class Powell 2 and 8. The tokens are of a greyish-white colour. Lead tokens had a wide variety of uses and were made locally; they are therefore hard to date precisely. Those with initials are generally thought to be Post Medieval in date and due to the style of lettering, these examples may date to the latter half of this period. Row 1: Eight identical tokens. The token has the raised initials 'S' on one side, with a central pellet and the number '12' below; the…

Record ID: SWYOR-992F21
Object type: POWDER MEASURE
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: North Yorkshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A Post medieval lead alloy powder measure cap. It is a small circular vessel with a circular base and straight sides, probably dating from the 17th Century. It is somewhat distorted. It was the cap of a powder measure (also known as an apostle since there were twelve on each bandolier) which contained enough gunpowder for a single round. Two scars show where two small loops once projected from the sides at the base; both are now missing. These would have allowed it to be attached to the bandolier and the body of the powder measure by a cord. For reference see Courtney, P. 1988 'Small A…

Record ID: SUR-9752C7
Object type: BUTTON
Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Hampshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete and worn post medieval cast lead alloy military button. Most of the circumferential edge is missing. There are remains of an iron attachment on the integral loop. The button bears the numerals 55 within a wreath. Steve Newman reports: This is a button of the 55th Regt of Foot who were at this time the 55th (Westmoreland) Regt of Foot. There is an earlier design which is suggested to be 1780-1800, so this design likely to have come in circa 1800. It is a pity that the edge is chipped as officers' buttons of the era have a design around the outer edge and I cannot fi…
