Cartagena, Colombia, cob 8 reales, Philip IV, assayer not visible ( E), rare. Restrepo-M45.8; S-C3; KM-3.4. 25.13 grams. Bold full cross with upper-right lion full and clear (distinctive tail in a backward-S shape), most of shield with clear upper-right portion next to bold denomination VIII reading vertically above a tiny RN mintmark, date not visible but most likely 1626 in order to have sunk on this ship in 1627, overall very solid (only light surface corrosion) but with peripheral flatness, toned all over (some dark spots), very rare as from this early Dutch wreck known for "lion" daalders. With original (generic) certificate from the salvor. From: Campen, sunk in 1627 off Isle of Wight, south of England
