Medieval cast lead-alloy circular uni-faced token. The token has a raised design of square topped shield with a chequey pattern on one side. The reverse of the token has an raised five petalled flower. Above the shield is a piercing through the token, possibly secondary. It is 22.1mm in diameter, 3.1mm thick and weighs 6.14 grams.

Post Medieval cast lead-alloy uni-face circular token, 1500-1850 AD. The token has the raised initials TP on one side. The reverse appears to have a raised pellet towards one edge but this could possibly be a casting flaw. The token measures 18.2 mm in diameter, 1.9 mm thick, and weighs 3.84 grams. Lead tokens were locally made and had a wide variety of uses; they are therefore hard to date precisely but those with initials are thought to be Post Medieval in date.

Half of a cast copper alloy token or coin. The item is a disk with a prominent raised design of a bust on one side. The break is old and patinated. The remaining half appears to have a blank reverse and there is no inscription on the obverse. While the style of the bust, from what can be seen, appears classical without the upper half of the head it is hard to be sure and classical style busts were also popular in the 17th to 19th centurys. It does not apppear to be a coin and may have been a token of some type. Lead tokens with imperial busts of probable Roman date are also known e.g. …

Post Medieval copper alloy token farthing minted for William Smith of Steyning, Sussex in 1667. Williamson Vol 3. p.1182, Sussex No.165. William Smith was a mercer. There is a reference, in Sussex Archaeological Collections 19 p.95, to a William Smith of Steyning who had an estate worth £20 seized by parliment in 1655 because the owner was either a Royalist or a Catholic (the ordnance covered both). This may or may not be the same person as issued the tokens but Williamson suggests it is.
