Record ID: ESS-6F892F
Object type: TOKEN
Broad period: MEDIEVAL
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
A lead alloy token of medieval to post medieval date. The token is decorated though the motifs are very unclear. It appears that one side features a cross or wheel-like object. The item has a light brown patina. Tokens were easy to make and distributed widely throughout a large period of time; therefore, they are difficult to date precisely. Those decorated to resemble Medieval long cross pennies continued to be circulated throughout both the Medieval and Post Medieval periods and a general date of c. AD 1250-1800 is given. They have a huge range of designs which were not necessarily …

Lead alloy toy soldier fragment. A probably solid cast naturalistically modelled cavalry horse at the canter, at a scale of c.1:35.

Lead alloy disc brooch. Cast plate with five moulded bosses on its display face, each bordered by a low gutter, and probably forming part of a cruciform arrangement, possibly with the peripheral bosses in the angles of a cross.
