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.

Post medieval copper alloy trade weight of 17th century date. The quarter ounce trade weight is complete, with a few damaged edges, measuring 19.5mm in diameter, 3.4mm in thickness and weighing 6.05g. The raised edge around the stamped inner area is 2mm wide and 0.6mm high. The weight is stamped with a sword (the City of London Guildhall mark) a ewer (the London Founder's Company mark) and a crowned 'C' which would indicate it was issued during either the reign of Charles I (1625-1649) or Charles II (1660-1685).
