Complete Medieval to Post-Medieval, sub-circular, biface, lead alloy token dating from AD 1400-1800. This is a Powell type 9 token. The obverse face has a quatrefoil within a square. The reverse of the token is decorated with a ring with central nipple and triangles on the outside of the ring arranged at the cardinal points. Lead alloy tokens were used for many purposes during the Medieval and Post Medieval periods, and cast by both large and small industries. They are therefore very difficult to date, but those with initials are thought to date to the Post Medieval period. Dimension…

A cast lead uniface token of medieval to post-medieval date. The upper surface is decorated with a ring of eight raised pellets around a single central pellet (Powel Type 30). This pattern of eight pellets around one is found on several other tokens described on this database, such as SUR-C62CE4 and SUR-C62CE4. However, this token is substantially larger and heavier. It is possible this design is inflenced by the 'circle of stars' seen on some early Anglo-French 'deniers de billon' (Fletcher, 2003, p20-21).

A Late Medieval lead alloy cross and pellets token, London series, AD1425-1490. The obverse has a eight petalled flower in the central field surrounded by a border of oblique rays. The reverse has a central short cross pattee with a ring and dot in each angle surrounded by a border of oblique rays. The oblique rays run in a clockwise direction upon both faces suggesting a London rather than Paris origin. Mitchiner and Skinner (1984:94) write "a significant number of 'cross and pellets' tokens have been recovered alongside coins of Henry VII, suggesting that they remained in use until t…

A copper alloy possible token of uncertain date. A thin and delicate flan, perhaps a token, the object is extremely worn and corroded on both sides. There is no detail or decoration on either side.It measures 19.79mm in diameter, has a thickness of 1.9mm and weighs 2.6g. Due to the lack of diagnostic features, it is not possible to date the object with any accuracy within the Roman to post medieval period. There are similar oblects to be found on the database at BERK-FCB46A and NLM-7A5323.

Obverse: Facing forward crowned bust, with marginal legend: AMOR VINCIT OMNIA (Love conquers all). Reverse: Straight cross moline with a boarder of oblique lines. Dimensions: diameter: 17.80mm; weight: 0.97g

Lead possible token. A small cast discoid token with a strongly moulded and possibly cabled border confining a design incorporating a central pellet and six or more smaller pellets around it. This resembles an early post-medieval button front, but there is no trace of a loop, though a thickened part projecting from the plain back might represent an attachment for a small badge. The object is deeply nicked at one point. Suggested date: Late Medieval, 1350-1500. Diameter: 15.8mm, Thickness: 1.8mm, Weight: 2.94gms

A jagged fragment of lead token of uncertain date. There is no discernible legend and not enough remains to identify an obverse type although a border of beading is visible around the circumference. There are two further raised curved lines of smaller beading within, one of which runs parallel with the outer border. The underside appears flat and undecorated.

A lead fragment possibly of a medieval to post-medieval token or of a medieval bulla. One face has decoration consisting of a cross and two curving pelleted lines. The other side is flatter but appears to be decorated with a raised oval ring and other indistinct lines and shapes. The oval ring is reminiscent of the faces of Saint Peter and Saint Paul on papal bullae. However, the cross on the other side does not match the design of bullae, which should instead have an inscription. This object is therefore more likely to be medieval to post-medieval token. Overall, the object measures 3…

Lead token. Cast token with moulded designs on either side, neither of which is immediately clear. The simpler scheme may represent a pair of spindly plants, with two or three tiny pellets scattered near them. The other side bears a more complex arrangement of straight and curving lines. These might include the triangular outline of a figure with over-long arms extended - but might equally not. Patinated. A token bearing a caricature face on one side and a similarly mysterious or casual arrangement of lines on the other came from an early 15th-century context at Lurk Lane, Beverley, Ea…

A cast lead uniface token probably of medieval date. It has a plain cross with one large pellet in each quarter (Powell type 14, Baylis type 2) Many tokens seem influenced by 15th century coin design. Such cross and pellet tokens may represent a 'leaden attempt to increase the number of long cross coins in circulation' (Fletcher, p 40) but may be a later agricultural or trade token, influenced by the base silver farthings of Henry VIII. Diameter 19 mm, thickness 3 mm. Weight 6.9 g, .

A uniface lead token of medieval to post medieval date. The face shows a raised cross with a pellet in each angle (Powell class 2). The token is sub-oval in shape. The reverse has a central depression that is probably a casting flaw rather than a decorative feature. Cross and pellet tokens were probably influenced by medieval coin design, although some Tudor coins also had that motif. Suggested date 14th - 16th century.
