That's nice. I agree, it's a large lead token.

This is the response off David powell mernick lead tokens.

At that diameter, probably c.1800-20ish; it is somewhere near a cartwheel penny in size, so probably near it in date as well.  The design is a pleasingly interesting elaboration of the basic petal design, and that too is consistent with the later 18th cent {at least}; however, most such elaborations are halfpenny rather than penny size.  I am about to write a few articles on 18th cent crude lead evolution for LTT, and this theme is one which I intend to cover.  Thanks for showing; it is a nice piece.  May I please put it in LTT if I want to?  Happy to acknowledge or leave anonymous as you prefer.
