It's a little cob, looks like 1/2 reale weight. I have the similar cross pattern on one if you look in my last colonial post. There's a few varieties. But Daniel Sedwick, writes books on them, said mine was most likely Bogota Columbia. If you send him photos of yours he can give you the best info. His book is great too.


Also, congrats on it!!! I got my first two and can't stop staring at them!

Thanks for the info, much appreciated! The area I was hunting has plenty of history, some that dates back to before king Philips war. I remember that epic post, good luck for the remainder of the season!!!

Now that I can see your back mark it might not be like mine! Definitely reach out to his email and he might set you up, he was super friendly for me. Bought his book and a couple items in the recent treasure auction.
