A lead alloy probable token of Medieval date, about AD 1400 - 1500. The token is uniface and circular. The design is of a simple cross with a pellet in each anle, all in relief. There is also a raised line separating a border which has groups of four radiating lines alternated with a large pellet. There is a small hole near the edge of the token, but this appears to be damage rather than a deliberate piercing. The reverse is plain. The token is 28.5mm diameter, 2mm thick and 9.33g. Compare the top middle photograph on page 40 of Fletcher (2005), Leaden Tokens and Tallies; Roman to Vict…

A cast lead alloy token of later Medieval or Post-Medieval date (1200-1800). The token is sub-circular in plan. The decoration on the front face of this token is that of a cross fourchee with pellets in between which is probably meant to simulate the medieval penny. This consists of a fourchee in slight relief consisting of ribs which emanate from the centre and finish at the edge of the token with pellets in between also in slight relief. The reverse of the token is undecorated. The design fits in to Powell's (2012) Type 14b (cross, imitating a Medieval penny). The token is light gre…

A Medieval to Post Medieval lead alloy uniface token of uncertain type, dating from c. AD 1250-1800.

A lead token or pilgrim related item, probably of medieval date. The token is circular and decorated on both sides with what appear to be religious scenes. One side depicts a robed figure standing. The upper half of the figure is missing, but to the left is a cross with pellet terminals, and to the right is a lozenge shaped motif, which appears to continue into the missing section. The other side depicts the lower half of a figure; both legs are visible, and there is perhaps short drapary across the waist. An additional figure is seen to the right and also to the left. This scene may d…

A fragment of a cast lead alloy sheet probably Medieval to Post Medieval dating to c. AD 1250-1800. The sheet was probably a blank for making tokens. It has the imprint of two circular tokens on the internal edge.. The sheet is of a greyish-white colour. It is possible that the sheet may have been circular in shape. It measures 58.7mm long, 36.8mm wide, 2.4mm thick and weighs 29.45 grams.. Lead alloy tokens were easy to make and widely distributed over a long period of time. Therefore, a sheet of this nature may have been a quick and slightly cruder way to produce these and as such …
