Cast lead token, circular in plan and flat in profile, but slightly bent from later damage. One face is decorated with a moulded central pellet, 4 mm in diameter, surrounded by four looped ovate arms, 11 to 12 mm in length and 8 to 10 mm in width, in a cross formation, all within a raised circular border around the edge of the token. The other face is plain.

Complete medieval - post medieval, lead, cross and pellets token. Based on the more elaborate designs of the 13th-14th century, this is a simpler cross and pellet token. The obverse face has a long cross with an off centre central pierced annulet, there is a single pellet in each of the voids and a raised border surrounding. The reverse of the token appears to have a large 1 numeral on it and a punch mark that penetrates through the token on the obverse to create the annulet. The arabic numeral would suggest a later medieval - Post medieval date, perhaps 15th-16th century, when their u…

Probably a London type of cross and pellet, these are found almost exclusively in Lond…

A bent inwards lead late medieval or early post-medieval token. There is a long cross on the reverse with pellets in a few quarters, surrounded by a crude legend. There are similarities with the late medieval/early post-medieval series 10 and 11 imitation Bury St. Edmunds and Ely 'boy bishop' tokens, but it is not clear if it belongs to this group or is a general late medieval trade token, which also often imitate contemporary coinage (e.g. LEIC-F25194).
