A Medieval lead alloy token, dating AD 1425-1490. The token is from the Cross and Pellets series, though only one face is visible due to wear. On one side there is a cross potent, with pellets in each quarter. A border can be discerned on the opposite face but that is all. The token has a mid grey pattination and is worn around the edges. Due to its condition, it is impossible to pin down the identification of this token any further. Dimensions: diameter: 12.54 mm; weight: 0.46g.

A complete lead alloy token or tally of probable later medieval date. The token is unifaced and depicts a long cross design through the centre of the token with a pellet in each quarter. The design is reminiscent of long cross coinage of the 14th and 15th century, and it is likely that this token was imitating the coinage of the time.

A Post Medieval lead alloy uniface token, probably dating from the 14th to the 18th century.

An incomplete Late Medieval lead alloy token, dating AD 1425-1490. The token appears to have decoration on both sides, though one is difficult to discern.

A copper-alloy double-sided coin weight of Post-Medieval date 1500 to 1658 probably for weighing a Hungarian Ducat. It is rectangular in form and section with uneven edges.

The reverse carries a maker's mark comprising a hand and although indistinct probably letters B F within a beaded or border. This would indicate that manufacture was in Antwerp by the maker Bernaert Foncq. The weight is therefore of early Post-Medieval da…
