MEDIEVAL - LARGE GROUP OF LEAD TOKENS - 177 PIECES

Circa 15th - 17th century. A large group of 177 lead tokens with various devices: flowers, crosses, cross-and-pellets, letters, etc (177). 905 grams, 10 to 38 mm.

Condition
Fine to very fine. Scarce as a group.

Provenance
Property of a deceased detectorist.

Footnotes
Little is really known of these tokens. Many have been found on farmland, suggesting that, similar to the later Hop Tokens, they might have been used for piecework or they may have served as unofficial small change. An interesting and mixed group, ideal for study.

Date
Thursday 9th September 2010 at The Swedenborg Hall Antiquities & Coins
