Record ID: LON-B1BC84
Object type: COIN
Broad period: MODERN
County: Greater London Authority
Workflow stage: Published Find published
A modern white metal copy of a post-medieval halfgroat of Henry VIII (1509-1547), copying either the third or post-humous coinage. There are several reasons to consider this a modern rather than contemporary forgery, probably dating from the Victorian period onwards.

A lead alloy miscast token, probably Post Medieval (1500-1700 AD). The two halves of the mould failed to unite creating this token which has its two halves overlapping. Both sides have the initials WR in retrograde contained within an upper and lower border of vertical lines, all in high relief. Each half is approximately 19.4mm in diameter, and about 75% of each is conjoined, leaving an overhang on each side of around 25% of the token. Therefore, the total width of the find is 24.03mm. The token is only slightly worn and has a pale buff-brown patina. Dimensions: length: 20.7mm; w…

A complete Post Medieval bifaced lead alloy token (16th-17th century). Both sides have been cast with a raised design featuring a central motif inside a circular border. On one side the design is a boat on the sea surrounded by a nonsense legend on one side; the other side has a heraldic shield inside a border of radiate symbols with differing cross-bars. Both of these borders are perhaps imitating a written legend. The token has a dark grey-black patina. Egan (2005) illustrates tokens with either a boat, p. 168 ref. 899, or an heraldic device, p. 168 ref. 894, but not a token displayi…

A post medieval copper alloy trade token farthing of John Ellis from Greenwich dating AD1648-1674. The token is recorded in Boyne (1858), p. 136 ref. 270, but here the spelling of Greenwich is correct as we spell it today. Ellis must, therefore, have had at least two different issues in which the spelling of the location was changed. Obverse description: A sugar-loaf. Obverse inscription: IOHN.

A complete Post Medieval lead alloy two part cloth seal, 1500-1700 AD. One disc from the two-part cloth seal is missing and the tab which connects the two has been twisted and is now lying flat against the remaining disc. This was probably done in order to snap off the other half of the seal. The centre of the face of the seal has a raised circular platform, which has the moulded lettering “GK” with a pellet in between. Aside from these initials there is no other decoration, and so the seal has very few diagnostic features to assign it a more specific date. There is a small area o…
