Lead token of Medieval to Post Medieval date (1300-1750), the face bears, in deep relief, an incoherent pattern of large dots. The back is plain and slightly convex suggesting that it has been cast in an open mould. Diameter 17.5mm, Thickness 2.7mm, Mass 4.39g.

A complete and misshapen post-Medieval lead alloy circular double-sided token (c. 1500-c. 1850). Powell Type 2/2. The token has raised initial letters: T C on one side and T S on the other side.
