1778-1779 TOKEN Rhode Island Ship Token, No Wreath, Copper MS62 Brown NGC. Breen-1139, W-1730, R.3. The obverse depicts Admiral Richard Howe's flagship, while the reverse depicts Conanicut Island in Narragansett Bay, with Continental troops fleeing from the approaching British fleet.

Lighter tan remains from original mint color on this lovely 18th century colonial issue. (PCGS# 579)
