Cartagena, Colombia, cob 2 reales, (1)626(E), RN-(E) to right, very rare, from the Concepcion (1641), with Lasser notes. Restrepo-M29.4; S-C3; KM-unl; CT-unl. 5.8 grams. Good full cross-and-tressure and nearly full shield and crown, with bold denomination dot-II-dot to left, faint but certain mintmark RN to right, very clear 26 of date, nicely toned but some weak strike, light surface corrosion, VF overall. Note: For this type Lasser and Restrepo only listed 3 dates that they had seen (1630, 1633 and 1634), so this is a new one, and it is also the earliest confirmed date on any post-1622 Colombian cob. From the Concepcion (1641), with penciled notes hand-written by Joseph Lasser on tag (although curiously he missed seeing the date!).
