A complete Medieval to Post Medieval cast lead alloy circular unifaced token (1250-1800 AD). The token has been cast with a raised design of a equal arm cross with a pellet in each quarter on the obverse and a flat, undecorated reverse. The token measures 12.30 mm in diameter, 1.84 mm thick and weighs 1.1 grams. Lead tokens had a wide variety of uses and were made locally; they are therefore hard to date precisely and could be Medieval or Post Medieval in date (1250-1800 AD). Until recently cross and pellet designs were thought to be contemporary with the similar Medieval coin designs…

Approximately half of a cast lead alloy token or tally of late medieval to post-medieval date. The token is unifaced with an equal-armed cross with pellet in each quarter on the obverse. The reverse is plain. Tokens are hard to date as they were in use over a long period of time; those with crosses and pellets are sometimes said to be imitating long cross silver pennies of the medieval period; this may be the case however we cannot be certain; later tokens appear with initials on them. As this token has the long cross design and no initials, it is suggested that it dates from c. 1400-…

A complete cast lead uniface medieval token. Powell type 2, linear cross with pellets. A crude cross divides the face into four unequal quarters, with a large pellet in each quarter. A line runs across the face, roughly following the diameter. Fletcher (2005, p 40-41) suggests this design could be 15th century, inflenced by conteporary coin design, but notes similar designs are also found on base silver Tudor farthings. The reverse is blank. The token weighs 7.69 g and has a diameter of 19.5 mm.
