An extremely worn and corroded possible copper-alloy coin weight of medieval or post-medieval date. It is circular and seemingly decorated unifacially, although both surfaces are highly corroded. The upper face appears to depicts a ship. It has a rounded circumference. The design and size of this coin weight are consistent with it relating to a noble, if anything. Withers & Withers (1995, 18-19) illustrate these 15th- and 16th-century coin weights.

Cast copper alloy weight for a half Ryal (Rose Noble) or a Half Noble. The weight is circular and flat with a raised design on one side only. The design is of a ship with a rose on the side of the ship. It is 18.1mm in diameter, 4.6mm thick and weighs 6.55 grams. The centre of the weight has damage to both sides indicating possible re-use, the purpose of which is unknown. Ryals were only issued 1464-1470 AD although they circulated for longer; however later weights tend to be square so this example probably dates to 1464-1600 AD.
