Trade in lead, perhaps (4)


I believe the answer is:


'trade in' is the definition.

'lead perhaps' is the wordplay.
'perhaps' indicates an anagram.
'lead' anagrammed gives 'DEAL'.

(Other definitions for deal that I've seen before include "Kent resort" , "Fir or pine wood" , "A port, a bargain" , "Distribute cards or do business" , "Loss of life" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
