Wonderfully preserved Rhode Island Ship token. Evenly struck with strong details. Ebony-brown toning covers unabraded, moderately granular surfaces. Produced as a Revolutionary War propaganda medal, made by the British and intended to keep the Dutch out of the conflict.
A nice, affordable example of this first dollar coin supposedly produced under the auspices of the Continental Congress.
Excellent braided hair half cent type coin with a sharp strike. Smooth deep brown surfaces with nice remaining orangey red tints highlighting the devices, especially present on the reverse. The primary set displays a MS65RB example for the date.
Flashy mint luster gleams through silver surfaces with tints of pale gold here and there. Trace die clashes can be seen on the obverse but no surface marks of any significance. Scarce and popular type 2, 3-cent silver type that was only issued from 1854-1856. A MS66+ example for the date is displayed in the Hansen Collection number one set.
