A uniface workplace tally of 'Prospect Works'. The tally is die-struck, with a stamped number (8) at the centre and a piercing above.

In view of the findspot, the 'Prospect Works' named on the tally is probably the Union Street premises of the Harrold family, ropemakers of Dursley from 1879 until 1917, when their business was sold to Scandinavian Belting Ltd of London.

Tallies were used by workers in various industries for such purposes as withdrawing tools from stores, collecting wages and, in the case of miners, indicating when they were underground.
