Cartagena, Colombia, cob 4 reales, (16)29E, RN-E to left, very rare, from the Concepcion (1641), with Lasser notes. Restrepo-M36.2; S-C3; KM-2.4. 12.8 grams. Solid, thick and well-centered specimen with minimal surface corrosion (VF details), the shield and cross impressively complete, with faint bottom half of date, bold full RNE, nicely toned. Cartagena cobs are rare, the 4R denomination especially so, and visible dates (like on this coin) are almost too much to hope for. From the Concepcion (1641), with penciled notes hand-written by Joseph Lasser on tag.
