Description

Attractive Rhode Island Ship Token, Rare Pewter Striking

Undated (1778-1779) Rhode Island Ship Token AU 55 PCGS. Wreath. Pewter Breen-1142. Writing in 1988, Breen suggests that only about six examples of this variety are extant. This is a lovely example with light gray surfaces and tinges of olive color near the borders. There is some roughness in the planchet (as produced) in a few areas near the rims, but the surfaces are generally smooth with no noteworthy blemishes. An extraordinary and rare representative of this satirical token. This lot includes NGC Photo Proof # 65826512. Listed on page 29 of the 2001 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2AUN, PCGS# 585)

It goes without saying that after the auction when we had a chance to have dinner together and get to know each other it even made it a better experience for me. I look forward to getting more involved with Heritage in the Future.
