A Post Medieval silver shilling of William III (AD 1694-1702) dating to AD 1695-1702. The object is a smooth and worn coin that has been bent into an 'S' shape to be used as a love token.

The body of the object narrows slightly to a stylised animal head at the base. The head includes a rounded snout and impressions for the eyes. Abrasion, caused by movement whilst within the plough soil, has resulted in a loss of most of th…

The reverse face is flat and un-decorated. The token has a dark grey coloured patina across…

An incomplete fob seal or seal matrix of Post-Medieval date, circa AD 1600-1700. The object has an oval shaped seal matrix. The seal has a tapering and flattened handle, which expands at the top to a damaged transverse ridge.

Two lead alloy tokens of later medieval to post-medieval date, circa (AD1400-1800). The tokens are sub-circular in plan. Both tokens are very worn and the decoration is only partially remaining. The tokens have a cream to grey coloured patina across all surfaces. The tokens have been bent and distorted in the plough field. Lead tokens had a wide variety of potential uses such as use as tallies, gaming pieces, tickets, weights, etc. and are believed to have been locally produced; they are therefore difficult to date precisely. Those carrying initials are generally deemed to be Post Me…
