Half-ounce cup-weight, perhaps from a nested set. The diameter is 25 mm across the rim and 20 mm across the base. Groove around the rim, central internal dimple and external filemarks on the base, but no official stamps or marks.

Standing lead weight with flattened perforated top. The base is circular, 14 mm in diameter, and has a central depression 5 mm in diameter and 18.5 mm deep. The weight is cylindrical for about half its length, and then tapers and flattens to 8 x 4 mm. Here it has a 3 mm diameter circular perforation. Although this weight could have been hung from a steelyard (giving a variable weight) it could also have been used on its own; it wouldn't have been in a trader's interest to use it, though, as even today it is just over weight at 29.29g (1.01 oz).

Lead object, probably a weight. It is roughly circular and plano-convex, and looks very like a spindle whorl except that it is unperforated. There is a 5 mm deep circular dimple (diameter 4 mm) in the centre of the flat base. The base measures 23 x 20 mm and the weight is 10 mm tall. It weighs 25.46g (0.85 oz).

Irregular lead weight, a rough truncated cone in shape, which has a U-shaped iron loop in the middle of the larger face. It weighs 39.26g. Weights with iron or copper-alloy loops may be Roman; biconical ones certainly are, but these more irregular shapes could possibly be of other dates too.

Thick lead disc with raised border on either face. On one face the border has at least three and perhaps four transverse grooves, deep ones at 12 o'clock and 6 o'clock and a shallow one at 3 o'clock; there may be a very shallow and broad one at 9 o'clock. Possibly a trade weight, although at 59.48g (2.05 oz) it seems unlikely as it is overweight for 2 oz. Undatable.

Unusual lead trade weight. Although it is circular and stamped on one face with a crown, the reverse has some unusual features. The circle is 23 mm in diameter and 6 mm thick with a bevelled edge on the reverse. In the middle of the reverse is a short projecting lug with a burred-over end; one edge of this burred-over end projects out to the edge of the circle. The crown on the front is, I think, of the medieval type with a band around the head, a high central ornament and two lower side ornaments, but it is tall and thin and the details are blurred. The weight weighs 26.4g, which…

Copper-alloy disc, 3 mm thick and imperfectly circular (17-18 mm diameter). On one face are three off-centre dots; on the other are two engraved lines perhaps making up the letter L. It weighs 6.36g, which is 0.22 oz - close to a quarter of an ounce. It is therefore possibly a quarter-ounce weight, but has no official markings. The markings it does have are not obviously those for a quarter-ounce.

Lead weight, plano-convex in shape but slightly irregular with a bumpy surface. 23 mm in diameter and 13 mm tall, it has a central perforation flaring very slightly from 7 mm diameter at the top to 8 mm diameter at the base. The flat base has a rough groove around the perforation. Weighs 31.99g (1.13 oz).

Lead weight, a tall neatly made cone in a very white lead which has ?recent, perhaps agricultural, damage to one side. 22 mm tall, the base is squarish with rounded corners and probably 14 mm square (the damage makes this uncertain). In the centre of the base is a 2 mm diameter hole which runs 7 mm into the body of the weight before ending. Weighs 22.93g (0.81 oz).

Conical lead weight, 14 mm tall and 12 mm in diameter. The cone rises off-centre from the base with one side at a steeper angle than the other. In the centre of the base is some iron corrosion, which suggests that there may once have been an iron suspension loop here, but a magnet is not attracted to it. Weighs 8.84g (0.31 oz).

A complete cast lead trade weight of medieval to post-medieval date. The weight is shield shaped and is decorated on the upper surface with a crowned-lis. The reverse is flat and undecorated. The metal is a mid greyish-brown colour and is worn. The weight is 46.3mm long, 31.9mm wide, 4.6mm thick and weighs 48g. Lead weighs such as this were commonly used to weigh goods under the averdepois system from 1390 in England and were used throughout the 15th century. It is likely that these weights represent a desire to standardize the trade weight system. Biggs & Withers (2000, p.34) di…

Copper-alloy cup weight for half a troy ounce. 9 mm tall, 22.5 mm in diameter at the top and 19 mm at the base, its hollowed-out middle is slightly off-centre. Around the rim are small neat ring-and-dot motifs. The base is slightly rounded and there are oblique filemarks around the outside. It weighs 14.51g, which is equal to 0.512 avoirdupois oz. and 0.4665 troy oz. As it is likely to have lost some weight through corrosion it therefore seems likely, as suggested by Biggs (English Weights: An Illustrated Survey, 1992), that this belongs to a troy weight system. He dates this type…

4oz copper-alloy trade weight, 50 mm diameter and 9 mm thick, decorated with concentric grooves and stamped with at least three stamps. These are hard to read due to corrosion, but all appear to be the same - a crowned GR. They are placed at 12 o'clock, 4 o'clock and 7 o'clock, all with the crowns towards the outside. Probably a provincial (non-London) weight of the late 18th or early 19th century (up to 1826). Now weighs 111.28g (3.93 oz).

Copper-alloy standing 2oz "bell" weight, with flaring rectangular handle, triple collar and bell-shaped lower half. The perforation in the handle has been blocked with lead, and there is also a lead plug projecting from the underside. Despite the addition of the lead, the weight still only weighs 54.57g (1.93 oz). It has no official stamps, but parallels are known from the second half of the 18th century. I have recorded it as the additional lead seems interesting.
