POST MEDIEVAL WEIGHT

Cast copper alloy flat circular trade weight (0.25 ounce). It has three stamps, including the sword of St Paul, denoting that this is a London weight. The letters 'OE' or 'BE' shows the issue, but it is unclear what it is. The other stamp is possibly a crowned 'WM' suggesting William and Mary but again this is unclear. It is late 17th century in date.
