Another find from today's Club dig..

The colour suggests some age, but the smooth finish, rounded edges and a lack of "crudeness" makes me think it's post medieval or maybe later..

I had a look on the PAS data base and can't find a exact match, but a couple of lead hearts were attributed as love tokens and another as a possible weight..This one weighs 0.96oz so that could be a possibility, but I think a love token more likely?

Darn it can’t some of these lead things come with descriptions, or at least some sort of clue?

I think it’s most likely a one-off love token and you’ll not find another. Unique :Star:

P.S. unless it’s just a ‘something else’ !
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
