Rare Pewter Rhode Island Ship Token AU55 PCGS1778-1779 TOKEN Rhode Island Ship Token, Wreath Below, Pewter AU55 PCGS. Breen-1142. PCGS has only certified a total of seven examples of this rare variety. Most Rhode Island Ship Tokens are struck in brass or copper. The Guide Book states, "those struck in pewter are all rare and valued higher." This lightly worn silver-gray piece displays abundant luster throughout the ships, soldiers, and legends. Some moderate handling marks on the upper obverse field, these are toned over and do not remove the eye appeal. A prize for the Early American specialist. Listed on page 48 of the 2006 Guide Book.
From The Oak Collection of American Colonial Coinage.(#585) (PCGS# 585)
