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 circular uni-faced token, 1500-1850 AD. The token has a raised design on one side of the initials J and F seperated by a raised pellet with 12 above and possibly bls (or s19 upside down) below. The reverse is blank. The token measures 19.9mm in diameter, 3.1mm thick, and weighs 7.66 grams. Lead tokens were locally made and had a wide variety of uses; they are therefore hard to date precisely but those with initals are thought to be Post Medieval in date. Those with 6, 12 or 24 on are often hop tokens given to piece workers to keep track of how many sacks …
