Probably a Medieval coper alloy jetton possibly of Continental, Italian or French issue dating to c. AD 1250 to 1350. Cinquefoil / quatrefoil over cross pattee design. This design is not paralleled in the usual sources but the crude style sugegsts an early date and the lack of a pellet border (which may be worn and chipped) suggests a continental origin.
