Description

Rhode Island Ship Token, AU55
VLUGTENDE Removed, W-1730

1778-1779 TOKEN Rhode Island Ship Token, No Wreath, Copper AU55 NGC. Breen-1139, W-1730, R.3. The original design had the word VLUGTENDE below the ship. That word is translated as "fleeing" and should never have appeared below Admiral Richard Howe's flagship on the obverse of these pieces. A few survive with the original obverse, although most examples, such as this piece, have VLUGTENDE scraped off the coin in an operation that occurred after minting. This pleasing Choice AU specimen has dark brown surfaces with exceptional eye appeal. Census: 2 in 55, 6 finer (4/12). (NGC ID# 2AUL, PCGS# 579)
