    Elusive Pewter Rhode Island Ship Token
    Wreath Below Ship, Breen-1142, Choice AU

    1778-1779 TOKEN Rhode Island Ship Token, Wreath Below, Pewter AU55 PCGS. Breen-1142. PCGS has only certified a total of eight examples of this rare variety. Most Rhode Island Ship Tokens are struck in brass or copper. Breen believed that the pewter pieces were dies trials. This lightly worn silver-gray piece displays abundant luster throughout the ships, soldiers, and legends. The upper field of the ship side (the obverse, per Guide Book, but the reverse, per Breen) has a cluster of faded marks. A prize for the Early American specialist. Listed on page 48 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 3 in 55, 4 finer (4/08).
    Ex: Oak Collection of American Colonial Coinage (Heritage, 9/2005), lot 372, which realized $12,075.
