Description:
1778-1779 TOKEN Rhode Island Ship Token, No Wreath, Copper XF45 PCGS. Breen-1139, Betts-562. A British propaganda medal intended for a Dutch audience. Initial pieces were struck with 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. This moderately circulated piece features mahogany fields and lighter tan hues near protected areas. Listed on page 48 of the 2006 Guide Book. (PCGS# 579)
