1778-1779 Rhode Island Ship Token, Wreath Below, Brass MS64 PCGS. Breen-1141. Betts-563. This impressive example retains its initial brassy green-gold iridescence within the letters and ship's rigging, while the open fields have toned cream-gray. Well preserved aside from a hair-thin mark between the upper two flags. Rarely seen with full mint gloss, and the eye appeal is exceptional. The Rhode Island Ship token is a British propaganda piece intended to keep the Dutch out of the Revolutionary War by portraying the American cause as lost.
