A cast lead alloy token probably of Medieval date, AD 1200 - 1500, possibly of a religious nature. Both sides carry moulded designs in relief. On one side is a crude standing figure, (possibly of Christ on the cross), facing forwards, with an over-sized head, very small legs apart and arms outstretched to the sides. In each of the quadrants created by the figure is a letter or symbol. That in the lower right hand quadrant may be an I or possibly a T; the upper left may be a sun or star and those in the other two quadrants are illegible. The reverse has a small plain cross in the centr…

A cast lead alloy token of later medieval or post-medieval date (1200-1800). The token is circular in plan. The design is limited to one face and is formed from a series of cast ribs.

The design probably fits in to Powell's (2012) type 26 which he describes as miscellaneous objects, including those that may be celestial and representing the sun. This token is classified as celestial rather than other similar types representing cartwheels due to the cast ribs being short of the rim and are…

Medieval to Post Medieval cast lead-alloy circular unifaced token of unclear Powell type (c. AD 1250-1800).

It is difficult to interpret what the design originally represented. The back is plain.
