Thanks for that  -  yes, I have the PDF of the tokens and as you say it's not in it. Given the find location though and the very clear lettering I have to believe it is from a St Andrews church.  They are quite fascinating and I am chuffed to have found this one.  Thanks for taking the trouble!

Bob.

Well dug! The lead bead with iron trace is a lead weight to open and close a doll's eyes when you tilt her. Your coin might be a well-worn bawbee; I think I can make out [n]emo and the u of impune; then again I might not...
