A cast lead alloy token or tally of post-medieval date. The token bears the faint remains of a raised design of a grid pattern of diagonal lines on one side and the initials R D on the other (Powell Type 22).

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 e…

Complete lead token of probable post Medieval date (c. 1500 - 1800). The token is flat and circular, with one face featuring a cross hatch design and a central thick, and slightly raised undecorated band.
