The Toll Dish - used by Narberth's traders to make payments to the local lord, in lieu of cash - has recently been acquired by the museum in the town.
It reads: "Those selling grain could pay the toll 'By the struck toll dish'."
"The dish is engraved, 'Narberth Market imperial Winchester Bushel standard Toll dish Sep 29th 1833'."
With help from the Friends of Narberth Museum, and donations from contemporary Narberth trader Andrew Rees and individual donations, the museum has been able to purchase the toll dish.
