    1778-1779 Rhode Island Ship Token
    Brass, No Wreath, W-1730, MS65
    The Finest Certified

    1778-1779 TOKEN Rhode Island Ship Token, No Wreath, Brass, MS65 PCGS. CAC. Betts-562, W-1730, R.4. Ex: Chapman. We have handled a number of exceptional Rhode Island Ship tokens over the years, but we have never handled another Gem example certified MS65. In fact, this brass example and one other piece certified MS65 Brown are the two finest Rhode Island colonials that PCGS has certified (6/21). This impressive golden-brown example has full satin luster, sharp details, and pristine surfaces, resulting in amazing eye appeal. For the early American coinage specialist. Listed on page 45 of the 2022 Guide Book.
    Ex: ANA Signature (Heritage, 8/2014), lot 5504.
