Cast lead-alloy whistle in the shape of a pipe bowl, probably late 19th century in date.

Casting flashes are prominent on both sides. Iron corrosion is evident on the rim, suggesting an iron collar. The beginning of the stem is intact, and it is unclear if the stem was also made of a lead alloy, ceramic or other material. See NARC-6E7E81 for a similar example. Further information on this artefa…

Crudely cast, freestanding lead, or lead alloy, discoidal weight. The upper side is inscribed with the letter "H" in a crude Roman capital; while the underside is inscribed with a linear design which may represent the letter "T" in a crude Roman capital.

Cast lead, or lead alloy, discoidal weight.

Cast copper alloy square weight. Both sides stamped with the same design: two Maltese-like crosses, one in the top left and the other in the top right corner, and a central, Roman capital, letter 'C'. Dimensions 19mmx19mmx11mm, weight 27.85 grams. The weight does not closely resemble any of the known British coin weights and was probably used for a purpose other than checking coins. Its current weight is just under an ounce. It is probably post-medieval in date.
