Complete Post-Medieval, sub-circular, uniface, lead alloy token dating from AD 1600-1800. This is a Powell type 1 token. The obverse face has a six-petalled flower and central nipple.

They are therefore very difficult to date, but those with initials are thought to date to the Post Medieval period. Dimensions: diameter: 19.49m; weight: 3.55g
