County: Northamptonshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A worn cast lead alloy token or tally of post-medieval date. The token bears the faint remains of a raised design of a grid pattern on one side and an abstract pattern on the other. Lead tokens had a wide variety of potential uses such as use as tallies, gaming pieces, weights, etc. and are believed to have been locally produced; they are therefore difficult to date precisely. Those carrying initials are generally deemed to be Post Medieval in date (c. AD 1500 - 1850), although this example is likely to be 17th century in date. It has been suggested that grid designs may represent plo…
