I have this mysterious little thing that I can't ID. It is only 13 mm. in diameter but is 3 mm. thick and weighs 3.56 grams. It seems to depict a "knight" holding a spear in his right hand and a shield in his left. The shield looks to be divided into four parts. The knight looks as though he is standing, facing, in a ship that has highly curved sides. It is uniface. The other side is blank. Could this be a medieval token or weight? It doesn't seem like it's a coin since it's uniface and thick.
Concur with the "coin weight" theory. The design, with somebody standing on a boat holding a shield, is of a English gold coin, the noble. A weight like this would thus have been used on a balance to detect clipped or counterfeit coins.
Don't say "infinitely" when you mean "very"; otherwise, you'll have no word left when you want to talk about something really infinite. - C. S. Lewis
