It is a lead token. I've found a few of the larger ones (also nothing on the back) and found another one yesterday actually. Pic here viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2726&p=28418#p28418

The small farm tokens go right back to the 13th C. but these larger ones are at the other end of the timeline - 17th/18th, maybe even 19th Century.

Dating these tokens is, as has already been said, mainly done on size for these type of tokens. We are lucky enough to have a token expert who helps us out with these. If you add photos and an ID request on this thread it notifies Dave and he’ll pop in to take a look :thumbsup:
