Here’s some photos alongside a tape measure. The one with a hole in is a little over 2 cm across at its widest point. The other one is more like 1.5cm diameter.

Thanks!Image

Found this yesterday. Think the initials on one side are C and R, I think (photo 2). I can’t shake the idea that this is something to do with royalists but I might be barking up completely the wrong tree.

Found Oxfordshire :thumbsup:

Any help with approx ages would be great. Found these all in about 30sq ft. One has a little detail on both sides. ..the others are all smooth on reverse. The first 2 are the same token although I think I may have got them confused in my description.

Hi hoping you can help with the identification of this token found recently. All dimensions should be easily seen on vernier gauge and scales patterns are concentric circles on one side and a herring bone pattern upon the other. Any info would be great thanks.

I've added some cropped images to hopefully give some better detail for the ID folk to get their teeth into for you Geoff

I found this lovely lead token on Friday evening in north Glocucestershire
It appears to have initials "mT" (if so why as the "m" smaller" than the "T", did it mean the initial of the given name was "m" and the surname "T"?).
Reverse is totally blank.
Diameter of 25mm.

I found this information on the leadtokens site -
"I am sometimes asked, when provided with a two-initial type 2 token and an approximate findspot, whether I can tell the enquirer anything about the issuer. I have written before on the improbability of being able to do this, due to the extreme common nature of most initial pairs, but for good measure I include at the end of this issue"
Allowing the initials are MT then it is 1155 per million (but if TM 7712).

Any suggestions on age would be much appreciated.
I am assuming it would have been valued at farthing / halfpenny / penny, which is the most likely?

leadtokendavid, have you seen an identical one to this previously, if so I would be very interested in its location.

Re my "mT" token above on my club FB page its been suggested that I am reading it incorrectly :o , and on reflection I am apt to agree :oops:

I now think that I have the initial "T", and that if you then turn the token 180 degrees you have a crown.
That would certainly explain why its much smaller than the T and the "blobs" on the base of the "m" (althouth the "T" also appears to have one), would be the "jewels" on the crown.

It might well be just coincidence but in the adjacent field I have found a lead token with a "T" on it (although that looked much older).

David is sadly unable to help with IDs right now. We thank him for all his time helping us over the last 18months, he’s been brilliant. Hopefully we can re-open the thread at some time in the future.

In the the meantime please post a standard ID request and hopefully someone can help :thumbsup:
