A paracetamol as a size guide? Are you trying to give me a headache =))

I’m interested in the lead button, what is your own ID on that one then? I’m always fascinated by the lead ones and that ones a beauty.

I am pleased to read that you like the lead button as for my id to be truthful i really don`t know the age of it :-/ but placed it to about 1650-1750 as it got the cast loop i think its quite early and with the pattern not unlike the ones you find on 18th century tokens but how do you date lead :-/
thanks
