Pewter Rhode Island Ship Token
Wreath Below Ship, W-1745, Choice XF

1778-1779 TOKEN Rhode Island Ship Token, Wreath Below, Pewter XF45 PCGS. Breen-1142, W-1745, High R.6. The Rhode Island ship token was a British propaganda issue, intended to keep the Dutch from entering the Revolutionary War. A majority of pieces were struck with the incorrect legend VLUGTENDE beneath the ship. The offending word was scraped from examples prior to issue. Additional medals were struck with a wreath ornament where VLUGTENDE had once resided on the die. The tokens are usually encountered in brass or copper; pewter examples are rare. This nicely defined piece shows deep steel-gray toning and no relevant marks. A few small roundish spots are scattered, typical for the alloy and type. Listed on page 48 of the 2012 Guide Book. (PCGS# 585)
