A Medieval to Post Medieval lead alloy token of Powell type 3. The token is circular in plan and is undecorated on the reverse. The front is domed or convex and has a motif of radiating lines or sunburst pattern; approximately half of this has worn away. A lead token with similar radiating lines, which is dated from AD 1675 to 1700, is illustrated in Egan (2005: p170; number 932). However, as the Devon item did not come from a dateable archaeological context, it can only be given a broad date.

A suggestion by Dr. Martin Henig for LON-8C0467 was a tessera used possibly as a pass to allow entry into a military building or the Baths, for example. An alternative possiblity is as a seal, but theer are no holes for the attachment of cord.

A copper-alloy post-medieval trader's token of the mid to late 17th century. The token is fairly worn and suffers from some corrosion so reading it is not easy. However, the obverse legend may read THO. CA[TTER]B[ANKE] and possibly [IN] LEITC[HFIELD] TC on the reverse, making it a token of Thomas Catterhanke, bailiff of Litchfield. A shield can be discerned in the centre of the obverse. It measures 17.1 mm in diameter, 1.1 mm thick and weighs 1.5 grams.

Cast lead circular unifaced token. The obverse of the token is decorated with the raised initials G over GF or GE. The reverse is blank. The token is 24.8mm in diameter, 2.33mm thick and weighs 6.84 grams. Tokens with simple designs were very easy to make, had a range of uses and continued in use for a long period. The arrangement of initials in this format was common in 17th century for married couples, the upper initial indicated the surname and the lower initials the husband and wives first names, suggesting this token dates to that time.

Post Medieval cast lead-alloy uni-face circular token, 1500-1850 AD. The token has the raised initials TP on one side.

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.
