Broad period: POST MEDIEVAL
County: Norfolk
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Post medieval lead quarter ounce trade weight of James I or II dating to the period c. AD 1603 - 1685. Roughly discoidal in form; one face is stamped with the initials I R surmounted by a crown. Weight: 6.7g, 0.23g avoirdupois. The weight is slightly under for a quarter of an ounce avoirdupois, however, some wear is likely to have occurerd during deposition, explaining the slight discrepancy in weight.

Lead possible weight. Cast weight of trapezoid form, cast in an open mould, and with a narrow slit in its top perhaps indicating that an object was inserted to help extract it. The metal retains a grey tint which points to its recent date. The mass may suggests this to have represented a [slightly overweight] half averdepois ounce. It was presumably home made for private use. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1800-1900. Height: 13.9mm, Width: 18.4mm, Thickness: 9.6mm, Weight: 15.08gms

Lead possible shot fragment. Cast shot with mould line which passes at right angles to a straight flat made, cut or broken edge; the ball is exactly halved. The mass of what remains might suggest this to have been a pistol ball of possibly military specification, and does not immediately suggest an intention to use the object for some other purpose: for example as a weight.
