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.

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 …

A broken cast copper-alloy pin with spherical filigree head of early post-medieval date (c. 16th century AD). The pin shaft is circular in cross section with a spherical knop at one end which projects just beyond the pin head. The other end is bent through 45 degrees and broken just below the head.

The head is unusual, in that, unlike other similar examples e.g.HAMP-A136D5, it is hollow with no central ball onto which the filigree was applied. The head is 12.1mm in diameter and divided into hemisphere…

A complete Post Medieval silver gilt dress pin with hollow-cast spherical head, c. 16th century AD. The pin has been drawn from a thick silver wire 2.40 mm in diameter and the shaft measures approximately 72 mm long (including the section through the head) with a 90-degree bend about one third of the length up from the point. Such bends are a common feature of these pins and it appears to be purposeful, perhaps due to use. The pin tapers gradually to a point at one end and ends flat at the other. The flat end seems to have been pushed through and soldered into a highly-decorative head…

Four fragments of wood shaped into objects. The objects are not clear but they are possibly part of furniture rather than tools. They are likely to be Post Medieval in date in line with other material found nearby. No weights area given as this depends on how dry they are.

Slightly curved (possibly bent once waterlogged) strip of wood with straight, parallel sides, a squared off end and an irregular break at the other end. One side is slightly thicker than the other but this could be from differential …
