Cartagena, Spain, bronze proclamation medal, Philip II, ND (ca. 1558), unique. 22 mm; 5.87 grams. Obverse with N.C in wreath; reverse with cross above four-line inscription reading N:CARTA / GO.RENAS / GENS.SVP / PHI:II. The Latin (original) name for Cartagena is Cartago Nova (New Carthage), but it is worth noting that there is a Cartagena (de Indias) in Colombia and a Cartago in Costa Rica, both of which were founded around the time this medal was made. F/VF, rather crude strike, some verdigris present. Pedigreed to the Ponterio C.O.I.N. '86 sale of June 14, 1986, with lot-tag #108.
