Description

Select No Wreath Rhode Island Ship Token

1778-1779 TOKEN Rhode Island Ship Token, No Wreath, Copper MS63 NGC. Breen-1139. This desirable Select Mint State example shimmers with luster. The dark brown surfaces are nearly void of marks, save for the depression on the obverse exergue. This depression is present on all but one known No Wreath pieces, where VLUGTENDE was removed from the struck tokens. VLUGTENDE was the maker's blunder of VLUCHTENDE, Dutch for "fleeing," something the American soldiers on Rhode Island are allegedly depicted as doing. As of (4/08), NGC has certified only two Mint State No Wreath Ship tokens, the present piece and an MS64. Listed on page 48 of the 2009 Guide Book.
From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three.
