Handsome Near-Gem Rhode Island Ship Token
Brass, Wreath Below Ship, Breen-1141

1778-1779 TOKEN Rhode Island Ship Token, Wreath Below, Brass MS64 PCGS. Breen-1141. Betts-563. This impressive example retains its initial brassy green-gold iridescence within the letters and ship's rigging, while the open fields have toned cream-gray. Well preserved aside from a hair-thin mark between the upper two flags. Rarely seen with full mint gloss, and the eye appeal is exceptional. The Rhode Island Ship token is a British propaganda piece intended to keep the Dutch out of the Revolutionary War by portraying the American cause as lost. Listed on page 48 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 2 in 64, 0 finer (8/07).
Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 9/2007), lot 39, which realized $12,650.
From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three.
