    2008 Guide Book Plate Coin
    Single Finest Certified No Wreath
    Rhode Island Ship Token, Breen-1139, MS64

    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.
    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.
    Ex: F.C.C. Boyd; John J. Ford, Jr. Collection, Part II (Stack's, 5/2004), lot 265.
    From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three.
    (NGC ID# 26LC, PCGS# 588)
