Rincon de Ajó token, Argentina?
« on: April 07, 2021, 11:42:42 AM »
I have the following token:

24-sided, bronze 26 mm, center hole
O: RINCON DE AJÓ / (loop)

Rincon de Ajó is, since 1997, a nature reserve in Argentina. It is located in the province of Buenos Aires, along the coast.
Ezequiel C. Real de Azure is probably a name

The token is not listed in the Rulau Latin America Tokens (I have the frist edition). It is also not on I think the date of the token is around 1870 - 1900. Probably it is from a farm or estate in Argentina, located in or near the present Nature Reserve.

Further information will be appreciated!

I found Ezequiel Real de Azua here. He became owner of Rincón de Ajó around 1839, at the time the Corrientes province, led by General Lavalle rebelled against Rosas and invaded Buenos Aires province. This episode ended between 1842 and 1847. The C in the name may stand for Los Cobo. See here.
