Splendid No Wreath Rhode Island Ship Token

1778-1779 TOKEN Rhode Island Ship Token, No Wreath, Copper MS63 Brown PCGS. Breen-1139. The Rhode Island Ship Token is a British propaganda medal, intended for a Dutch audience. Initial pieces bear VLUGTENDE, garbled Dutch for fleeing, beneath the ship. The makers realized that this word might imply that British forces had retreated, so the offending word was removed from struck specimens. Later, VLUGTENDE was replaced on the die by a wreath. This piece is the no VLUGTENDE, no wreath variety. Intricately struck and well cared for over the years. No abrasions are detected, only a hint of verdigris on the middle reverse ship and a faint retained lamination (as made) on the reverse field near 1 o'clock. Listed on page 48 of the 2006 Guide Book.
From The Oak Collection of American Colonial Coinage.(#579) (NGC ID# 2AUL, PCGS# 579)
