Cartagena, Colombia, cob 8 reales, 16(3?)E, C-E to right, rare, from the Concepcion (1641), with Lasser notes. Restrepo-M45.15; S-C3; KM-3.4. 25.8 grams. Very solid and well-detailed coin (minimal surface corrosion, XF details, nicely toned) with full and bold shield flanked by vertical denomination VIII to left and mintmark-assayer C-E (with small, diamond-shaped ornaments) to right, with bold PHILI- of king's name in legend, the reverse with nearly full cross and some bold legend, surely one of the choicest 8R specimens from this wreck. From the Concepcion (1641), with penciled notes hand-written by Joseph Lasser on tag.
