County: Cumbria
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Very small thin cast lead-alloy token dating from the medieval or early post-medieval period, that is c. AD1300-1700. It is circular and decorated with a pentacle (five pointed star) on one side and a swirly motif on the other. The function of these lead tokens is poorly understood but in the 17th century they were certainly used as tokens for very small change, and a similar function can be envisioned for some earlier pieces.

Small circular cast lead-alloy seal dating from the medieval or post-medieval period, that is c. AD1300-1700. The seal is small, with a shield on the obverse and some now illegible writing/initials on the reverse. Several of these seals are known and have been recorded on the database (LANCUM-BFF821, LANCUM-EE7F16 and LANCUM-EE7A53, but unfortunately their origin is poorly understood. They are probably bale or sack seals, maybe from a local manufacturer.

Cast lead-alloy token probably dating from the later post-medieval or early modern period, that is c. AD1600-1800. The token is inscribed I.W. on the obverse and has an unidentified symbol on the reverse. The symbol on the reverse resembles weighing scales (which wouid make sense in this context) or, possibly, an inaccurate fleur-de-lys, if turned 180 degrees. Lead tokens appear from the 13th century, and our understanding of this series has recently been enhanced by the large quantity recovered from the Thames muds. In the Tudor period letters appear (Cuddeford 1999, 57) and the se…
