Cast lead alloy button of probable medieval date (1300-1550 AD). The button consists of a circular domed (D sectioned) head, with an integral cast shank set at 90º to the angle of the head. The shank has been broken at the junction with the head. This break is relatively old as a patina has formed over it. The domed head of the button is abraded and unsymmetrical – if it had been decorated or had a applied finish no evidence for this now survives. The button head measures 9.9mm diameter, is 7.8mm thick and weighs 4.23 grams. The button is a mid white grey colour with an uneven …

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: ROMAN
County: Shropshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead or lead alloy weight of possible Roman (50-410 AD) or medieval date (1300 - 1550). The weight is oval (tear drop shape) in plan and ellipsoidal in cross section. At the narrowest terminal is a cast suspension loop (diameter 6.4mm). The purpose of this hole is uncertain but it might have aided safe-keeping and storage. As the sides of the weight flares the thickness of the weight also increases, however, at the base it tapers to form a rounded base. The weight measures 55.6mm in length, 28.6mm width and is 14.5mm thick. It weighs 109.24 grams or 3.85ozs (1686 grains). Th…

Cast lead or lead alloy weight of probable medieval date (1300 - 1550). The weight is sub-circular (formed from twelve uneven and irregular facets / faces) in plan and sub-triangular (conical) in profile. Through the centre of the weight is a cast conical hole.

An incomplete unifaced cast lead alloy token of probable late medieval / post-medieval date (1400 - 1650). The design on the upper face is off centre and depicts a crudely formed single mast ship with a hollow hull with a single central pellet (possible forming a rose). It is likely that this design is a direct copy from a rose noble (gold coin dated to the later medieval period). The reverse is plain. The token is sub-circular in plan and measures 18.8mm diameter is 2.9mm thick, and weighs 4.71 grams.

An incomplete unifaced cast lead alloy token of probable late medieval / post-medieval date (1400 - 1650). The design on the upper face consists of a central pellet around which four evenly spaced concentric raised circles are present. The reverse is plain.
