2008 Guide Book Plate Coin
1778-1779 TOKEN Rhode Island Ship Token, No Wreath, Brass MS64
NGC. Betts-562, Breen-1139. 144.2 gn, 32.0 mm, per its Ford
catalog appearance, where the present piece was described as Gem
Uncirculated. The 2008 Guide Book plate coin (page 48) for
the Rhode Island Ship token, and the single highest graded No
Wreath example by either NGC or PCGS. The strike is needle-sharp,
there are visible marks, and glimpses of the initial olive-gold
persist in protected areas. A subtle spot beneath the island is
barely worthy of mention.
Single Finest Certified No Wreath
Rhode Island Ship Token, Breen-1139, MS64
An intermediate variety of this well known Revolutionary War medal. The blundered VLUGTENDE legend is scraped off the lower reverse, as issued, but no wreath has yet been added to the die to replace it.
