A cast lead alloy uni-faced token of Medieval to Post Medieval date (Powell type 31). The token is circular and is decorated with three concentric circles surrounding a central pellet. The opposite face is undecorated. The object has a dark grey patina. Lead tokens were easy to produce and widely circulated; they appear in the Medieval period and ones with simple decoration continued in use throughout both the Medieval and Post Medieval period. Therefore, a general date of c. 1250-1800 AD is suggested for this token. Dimensions: 35mm in diameter, 3mm thick, 19.7g.

Lead token, biface with letters (probably) T M in a circle to one side and an indistinct design (possibly a crude image of a standing figure) on the other. Measures 23.1mm in diameter. Probably medieval, but tokens like this were in use for a very long time, and a post-medieval date cannot be ruled out. Powell class 2.

Lead token, very worn but probably biface and appears to have an outline shield design on one side (Powell type 16), but the other side is unclear. There is a small stub at one edge, so it appears to have been cast rather then stamped or hammered. Measures 13.1mm in diameter. This token probably dates to the medieval period, but a later post-medieval date cannot be ruled out

A small, complete lead alloy token or tally of medieval or post-medieval date. The token is unifaced with a cast design on one side depicting a long cross with a single pellet in each quarter. Although these are often suggested to be copying long cross pennies of the 14th century, the design has been shown to have been used on post-medieval tokens too, so as such and without contextual information this token cannot be date more closely than c. 1300-1800 AD, however the quality of the token may suggest a date of c. 1300-1600 AD.

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. Fletcher (2003) illustrates lead tokens with similar designs, one with more triangular loops and another with petal shapes, on pages 29 & 31, which are dated from the later Medieval period.

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…

Incomplete Medieval lead token, cross and pellets form (AD.1425-1490). Obverse is a a cross in the central field with a ring and dot in each void. Around the central field are diagonal spokes running clockwise. The reverse of the token is heavily worn, there is a central field and border but both are too worn to see any design clearly, though there is a suggestion of a shield. The edge of this token is damage and part has been folded over to cover a fraction of the obverse face, the rest is missing. Probably a London type of cross and pellet, these are found almost exclusively in Lond…
