ID of lead token with bird and arrows

Post by chrisbham » Wed May 16, 2018 10:01 pm

Hi all,

Has anybody seen a token like this before with a bird on one side and crossed arrows on another?

Interestingly the markings on the arrows/cross are not even and look manually punched (each line is a slightly different angle and length) opposed to cast.

I posted this one a few months back but have since got a new phone so no longer blurry bad photos! It has been recorded by the FLO but it didn't give much info besides what I can already see, https://finds.org.uk/database/artefacts ... /id/887102.

Found with a Garret Euroace on pasture about 6" down and the size of a 1p.

Cheers,
Chris

There are so many types of these that you seldom see exactly the same design twice, except perhaps for some simple ones. ::g

I thought that would be so but worth putting it up to see if it rings a bell with anyone, or at least in the future is someone is searching for keywords ::g
