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.
