Hello, I had a nice trip out yesterday with many buttons and a nice Maundy Groat of Charles II. I did find one lead object and I hope someone on here can give me a clue as to purpose and rough date. I have attached two photos.

It is completely lead with no markings
outer diameter is 14mm
Hole diameter is 8-9mm
The shape is toroidal but has a definite ridge on the outermost part.

I marked it down as a spindle whorl in the video but I am not sure. Any help much appreciated.

Thanks very much

Hi Stan, yes itís a Spindle Whorl.  They are almost impossible to date accurately and Iím fairly sure they are usual grouped into 2 groups. Plain being the oldest.
Post medieval, 1600ís to present and Pre 1600ís . This is usually decided by plain or patterned.
As yours is patterned, thereís your answer  Grin. As the name suggests they were used in the spinning process.

Thanks Val, nice to have confirmation.
I messed up badly with a coin identification, firstly calling it a Henry, then Edward I before being corrected Smiley
