Large copper alloy disc. Irregular shape and bent across the centre. 41mm in diameter. Lots of scratch marks on both sides but particuarly on the inside close to the fold. Exact function is uncertain but may be a scrap piece of copper alloy use to clean metallic/conductive parts on machinery. Form is similar to coins and tokens used as a 17th to 19th century love tokens, but the scratch marks on theinside suggest it had a more practical function.

Probable copper alloy lid from an Anglo-Saxon workbox. The lid is circular thin sheet of copper alloy with a central hole, containing a suspension loop. The loop consists of a single oval strip of copper alloy looped over at the top, threaded through the hole and then splayed on the reverse to secure it to the lid. Attached to the suspension loop is another small strip of copper alloy looped through the suspension loop, perhaps forming the first link in a chain. There is a further hole to either side of the central hole although it is not certain whether these are areas of damage. …
