Something i've never come across before and i apologise for maybe poor pictures and lack of detail, i found this yesterday on disced stubble with my X-Terra 705 with Nel Tornado 7.5Khz coil.I really struggled to get pictures of any detail as it is really worn. It is definately lead but came up with minimal white oxidisation on it but its soft enough to bend. it has a legend in very tiny letters on one side and bigger letters on the other. Because of the bend it is very hard to tell any detail in the centre! I have found lead tokens in the past but not with a coin type legend. Has anyone any thoughts on this please, again apologies if pictures are sub standard. Thanks for looking :D

I’ve found a few of them, sadly only one in reasonable condition. They don’t tend to survive well so yours, despite being bent, ain’t a bad one :thumbsup:
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking

Pewter commemorative medal by the look of it. Some decent pics would help!

It also looks like a lead/alloy commemorative medallion to me. :Thinking:
