Lead possible weight, as kindly identified by the finder. A square offcut of cast sheet of thickness 2.9mm with an incised design on one side: parts of three squares nested within each other are discernible. These are not linked or crossed by other lines, so a Merels or Nine Men's Morris board motif can probably be ruled out. Patinated, and lightly crumpled, producing concave sides to both the object and to the linear design marked on it. If indeed a weight, this may have represented one [underweight] averdepois ounce. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. Length (as found): 33.4m…

Lead possible weight. A disc cut from thick [up to 4mm] cast lead sheet, possibly with a toothed wheel which appears to have left billeted marks around the edge. A pair of cuts of length c.20mm hare executed from opposite edges, and one side of the object has subsequently been bent over on itself. Patinated, with slight more recent abrasion revealing grey metal. The slashes may represent the cancellation of a weight, perhaps representing two [underweight] averdepois ounces. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. Diameter: 40.6mm, Thickness: 4mm, Weight: 49.35gms

Lead circular weight of probable post-medieval date (c. 1500 - 1750 AD). The object is circular in plan, with sloping sides. It is of irregular thickness, with one side obviously thicker than the other. Both upper and lower faces are slightly sunken in the middle. The surface of the object is worn and notched. It has a smooth, light-brown patina. The object is 33.48mm in diameter, 14.84mm at maximum thickness and weighs 109.81g. Lead weights are difficult to date without archaeological context; however, weights of this form are typically assigned to the post-medieval period. Similar e…

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight, flattened on part of its edge, whether deliberately is uncertain. The letter W or M, in a rectangular panel and preceded or followed by a thick bar, in apparently recent style made up of crisp overlapping Vs, has been stamped thrice upon one flat side; patinated. Weights of this value do not appear amongst those reported from the London waterfront (Egan 1998, table 15, fig. 229). The apparent modernity of the stamped lettering is also at odds with the simple form and patinated surface of the weight. Suggested date: possibly Post-Medieval, 1500-1800. D…

Small circular cast cu-alloy weight, probably dating 1700 to 1900AD. The weight is circular with a wide raised rim on the top and an indented centre on the back. There are two pairs of incised concentric circles on the front. The weight was part of a 'nest of weights' and has a small rim around the upper surface in which a small weight would have fitted. The weight itself would have sat in the heavier weight underneath. The upper surface is stamped with two crowns and a castle and no initials. The weight has no parallels on the database although a triple towered castle can be a symbol …

Copper alloy weight. A cast discoid weight with incised lines on its upper surface and the upper surface of its rim, from a nested set. The incised lines on the upper surface and turning marks on the lower indicate the object was finished on a lathe. The mass may suggest this to represent two [underweight] averdepois ounces. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1750-1850. Diameter: 38.4mm, Thickness (at rim): 7.7mm, Weight: 53.0gms

Post medieval lead weight dating to the period c. AD 1550 - 1750. Discoidal in form with a circular perforation, probably for suspension. The upper face exhibits two stamps: A crown within a circular ropework border, possibly initials below, obliterated by the perforation. The arms of the City of Norwich (A castle keep over a lion facing left) within a beaded rectangular border. 433g / 6682.21 grains = just under 1lb avoirdupois. There are a number of dents and scratch marks on the surface, therefore, it is likely that the weight originally weighed 1lb and has lost some weight du…

Copper alloy weight. Cast rectangular weight with bevelled edges, and with the numerals 2 1 stamped into its upper side.

Lead weight. Cast discoid weight of short cylindrical form with a broad circumferential border enclosing lettering [now illegible] stamped on one side, just possibly with a central bust. The design, most clearly at the rim, may draw on that of the 'cartwheel' coinage of 1797. Lightly patinated. The mass may suggest this was intended to represent one half of an averdepois pound. The stamped legend might suggest this weight was for commercial use or of commercial provenance. From the mid-18th-century, the use of lead weights was curtailed, though contrarily, official inspection stamps ap…
