AU58 No Wreath Rhode Island Ship Token1778-1779 TOKEN Rhode Island Ship Token, No Wreath, Copper AU58 PCGS. Breen-1139. This British propaganda issue was produced to discourage Dutch involvement in the Revolutionary War, by depicting it as a lost cause for the American navy. This is an elusive issue, and few examples have survived in grades at or approaching the Mint State threshold. Tinges of original luster are evident in the more protected areas, the balance of the surfaces blend honey-tan and copper-brown toning. A small area of darker color is noted near the right reverse rim, but there are no other mentionable distractions. Remarkably well defined in all areas. Listed on page 48 of the 2007 Guide Book. Population: 5 in 58, 10 finer (10/06).
From The Jones Beach Collection. (PCGS# 579)
