Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: North Lincolnshire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Lead possible weight fragment. Cast flat-sided rectangle of lead, lipped from the mould along two adjacent edges and sheared at one end. Patinated. The present mass could point to an original value in excess of one averdepois ounce for the post-medieval period, though the loss of an uncertain extent vitiates further speculation; the cutting might represent deliberate cancellation rather than fortuitous damage. Alternatively perhaps a small ingot. Suggested date: Unknown, Later Medieval to Post-Medieval, 1350-1800 Length: 30.0mm, Width: 28.2mm, Thickness: 6.0mm, Weight: 39.50gms

Lead weight. Cast plano-convex weight with two adjacent facets, otherwise rounded; shrinkage lines on the flat side suggest this was cast in an open mould. A tapered hole of diameter 5-3.5mm passes through longitudinally off-centre. Probably a line weight. Patinated. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500 Diameter (long axis): 25.4mm, Thickness: 17.1mm, Weight: 44.15gms

A cast lead probable weight of uncertain date. Description: The weight is a roughly conical shape although irregularly formed. The apex and base are both uneven and have taken damage obscure detail such as possible iron loop for suspension. The side has a large scar also showing unpatinated inner surface. Measurements: 23.72mm high, 16.32mm in diameter and 19.56g in weight. Discussion: The object is relatively simple and dating of such weights is difficult if the object had an iron suspension loop a roman date could be suggested, in this case no loop is evidence, iron or otherwise s…

A cast lead pan weight of probable Roman date. Description: The weight is a roughly flat-conical shape although irregularly formed. The weight has raised decoration or roman numerals/tally on the top. Measurements: 24.37mm in diameter, 8.95mm thick and 25.7g in weight. Discussion: The weight is relatively simple and dating such simple weight sis difficult in this case the weight is very close to weighing one roman ounce or unica and thus a roman date is tentatively suggested.

Lead weight. Cast oval weight, of rectangular section with rounded ends. One end is nicked, which may be provision for tied fastening, though weights of this form would more usually have an integrally cast or drilled apical loop. Patinated. The form is broadly comparable with that of line weights and net sinkers of medieval date, though this is smaller than most examples of this form. Suggested date: Medieval, 1200-1500 Length: 31.4mm, Width: 11.6mm, Thickness: 9.1mm, Weight: 22.75gms

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.

Lead hem (or possibly curtain) weight, in the form of a 4.9mm thick flat disc of 24.3mm diameter with curved sides, and centrally located recessed circles of 9.5mm diameter on both faces, within which are two c.2mm diameter attachment holes. The recess is deeper on one face than the other. Similar examples can be seen on the database, e.g. NLM-B5C516, LANCUM-0C64F1, PUBLIC-12B9F7, although this one is unusual in that it has recesses on both faces. There is a reference to hem weights on page 83 of Bailey's (2004) 'Buttons and fasteners'. Probably of 18th or 19th century date, though t…

A complete Medieval to post-Medieval lead alloy standing weight (c. 1200-c. 1600). This weight is conical in form and the main body is circular in cross-section. It tapers from the base towards the suspension loop at the top. The base is flat and the top has oblique shoulders and a narrowed flat suspension loop. The piercing is a circular hole with a diameter of c. 2.5mm. The weight is grey overall. Height: 36.5mm; diameter at base: 19.3mm. Weight: 62.18g. Lead weights were used throughout a large span of time and were generally easy to manufacture; therefore, they are difficult to…

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.

Lead-alloy rimmed discoidal Medieval weight. The weight is cast, with a deep peripheral border set with an equal armed cross down in the centre of the base, thus forming a deep cup. There is small amount of damage to part of the rim otherwise the object is complete. Allowing for damage and corrosion the weight approximates to an ounce avoirdupois. A similar weight can be seen on this database ref. NMGW-5DED1E. Circa AD1350-1550. Diameter 23.5, Rim height 8mm, weight 23.64g.
