    Odd lead UK find

    Found pretty close to Heathrow airport. A bit smaller than a US penny. A little concave on the back with a small rim. Was ID as a Celtic potin, but I sent pics to a an expert/collector that said it wasn't. Any ideas?

    I'm not an authority on Roman coins, but it kind of looks like a Roman coin.

    It definitely has an old look to it, but don't think it's a coin as it's lead.

    Lead seal or weight for sure.

    I would also say byzantine.

    Looks like a very crude Medieval Lead Token.

    I would guess two piece seal as well. Especially with the little nubs on the edge...
