A Post Medieval circular copper alloy pan weight, 44.4mm in diameter, weighing 97.77g (3.5 oz). One side is engraved with at least three sets of paired concentric lines. The edge is slightly bevelled. The patina suggests a high lead content to the alloy. Circa 17th-19th century.

A complete copper alloy post-medieval trade weight dating from the period AD 1714-1830 (George I - IV). There are four stamped marks on the face; the sword of St Paul (for London) at 12 o'clock, a letter A at 4 o'clock (standing for Avoirdupois - a system of weights using pounds and ounces as the units), an ewer at 6 o'clock for the Founders Company and the royal cipher of a crowned G at 9 o'clock. Both the front and reverse of the weight has concentric grooves and a central dimple or recess showing the object was lathe-turned. The trade weight was probably for an ounce or 3/4 ounce, w…

Post medieval lead four ounce trade weight of James I or II dating to the period c. AD1603 - 1685. Roughly discoidal in form; one face is stamped with the initials I R surmounted by a crown, the arms of the City of Norwich (A castle keep over a lion facing left) and four oval recesses in a line, denoting the weight. Weight: 113g / 3.98oz avoirdupois. The slight discrepancy in weight is probably down to damage caused after deposition.

A complete post-Medieval copper-alloy trade weight (c. 1850). This weight is circular in plan and the sides flare from the base to a flat rim. The front face is dished and has stamped marks: Crown above C*S; 'O' below C*S; '2' and unclear mark. The outer part of the underside is flat and the centre is concave and uneven. A small hole penetrating the rim may be a casting flaw. The weight is generally reddish overall. Diameter: 36.0mm; thickness: 8.6mm; maximum width of rim: 3.7mm. Weight: 47.57g. (1.6780 ounces). Compare with other trade weights stamped: C*S: HAMP-5EE78D; HAMP-D5E…

Lead weight. Cast near-conical weight with a flat base bearing a small [diameter 2.7mm] centrally drilled hole; in profile the cone is slightly offset relative to its base. Slight shrinkage lines at the flat end may indicate the object was cast in an open mould. The metal retains a grey tint which may point to a relatively recent date, or to unusual circumstances of burial. Weights of pyramidal form are often ascribed to a broad medieval date, and some are reported from the London waterfront (Egan 1998, page 322; Biggs and Withers 2000, 30-33). The conical form superficially resembles…

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

A complete lead alloy weight or gaming piece of uncertain dating. The weight is disc shaped, with flat faces and rounded sides. There is an incised line across one side just offset from centre. The other side face very faint lettering around the outside edge, too worn to be legible except for a possible X. The metal is worn and creamy brown in colour. The weight is 27 mm in diameter and 2 mm thick. It weighs 12.83g. The dating of lead objects of this general type is problematic, and their use is invariably uncertain. This function is not certain however and the object may have served a…

Lead weight of probable post-medieval date (c. 1600 - 1800 AD). The weight is cylindrical in shape with a circular depression at the centre of one face. The object has a light-brown patina. It is 20.33mm in diameter and 10.27mm in thickness. It weighs 25.40g. Lead weights are difficult to date without archaeological context. The shape of this example, as well as the light patina, suggests a post-medieval date range is accurate, although a similar example on the database is recorded as uncertain: DENO-6BAA12.

Copper-alloy trade weight of post-medieval date (1603 - 1625 AD). The object is circular with a wide, raised rim around the edge of the upper face.
