Any idea what this could be?
« on: February 21, 2017, 12:17:14 AM »
I found this at the weekend whilst out detecting. It's made of lead and is about the size of a pound coin.

Can't be sure but I would go for a bag seal.

Most likely a bag seal right enough.  Check the edges and see if there is any sign of a 'hole' or opening going through it - if there is, then it is ...

I'm not sure it's a bag seal. It's only about 2mm thick.

It's quite neatly made, it looks more like the material my Turner was made of. Did they make bag seals in various types of alloy?
Would it be a token do you think?

I think it is a token. Part of the writing at the top says anim..... Then at the bottom it looks like it says......... World. It has a shield shape in the middle with the number 10 in it.
