POST MEDIEVAL WEIGHT

A postmedieval copper alloy trade weight. The weight is disc shaped; it is circular in plan and has two flat faces. One face has possible stamp marks which may be a sword and ewer. There is a circular hole towards the centre, which may have been intended to altar the weight with the addition of a 'plug'. The weight is damaged and worn. The weight weighs 46.58g and measures 33mm in diameter.
