A complete Medieval to Post Medieval cast lead alloy circular unifaced token. The token has a raised design of an equal armed cross overlaid by another, forming a cartwheel design. The reverse is undecorated and flat. Fletcher (2003) has a virtually identical example (un-numbered) on p.30, one of a collection of medieval and post-medieval lead tokens found fieldwalking by a Nottinghamshire finder. Bailey (2000) illustrates a similar token on page 14, fig.16, which is dated from the 17th century.

On the other face is a crowned lion rampant. The object has a circular piercing at 12 o'clock through both faces to suggest it may have also been worn as a pendant. There are no visible legends on the counter. Fletcher (2003:p.37) illustrates similar e…

A complete Medieval to Post Medieval cast lead alloy uniface token, dating from c. A 1250-1800. Powell Type 7. One face of the token has a grid style pattern,the other side is blank. The token is of a light grey colour. Diameter 17.66mm. Thickness 1.83mm Weight:3.9gms. Lead tokens had a wide variety of potential uses such as tallies, gaming pieces, tickets, weights, etc. and are believed to have been locally produced; they are therefore difficult to date precisely. Therefore those with simple designs are given a more general Medieval to Post Medieval date. Class: Powell Type 7

A complete cast lead lead-alloy token dating to the late Medieval or early Post-Medieval periods, c. 1450-1550.

The other face depicts a short cross with three pellets in each angle within a central circular panel, outside of which there are two concentric bands of decoration and oblique lines as with the opposite face. This gives an appearance remeniscent of a…

A large and incomplete lead alloy token or tally of medieval or early-post-medeival date. The token is unifaced and has an outermost border of short lines within two concentric lines, with a pelleted field below. The centre of the token has a larger design, possibly of a flower however the wear and fragmentary condition of the token makes it hard to see. The reverse is plain and undecorated. Tokem with this style of border are sometimes considered to be c. 16th century in date - the size would suggest a date earlier than the 17th century, so a date of c. AD 1300-1600 seem reasonable.

A complete medieval to post-medieval bi-faced lead token dating to the period circa AD 1300 - 1700. Powell type 2 depicting initial "M"/uncertain Powell type - illegible. The metal is a mid-brown patina and is worn. The token is 19.5mm in diameter, and weighs 3.5g. Tokens with simple designs are very easy to make and continued in use for a long period. They have a huge range of designs which were not necessarily related to function and could have been used for various purposes such as counting, gaming, farm or tavern tokens or possibly even as weights.
