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.
Superb near gem example of this popular issue. Sharp design elements and attractive golden tan surfaces with peach undertones. Nice! We find the small letters variety to be slightly tougher and more desirable than the Large Letters. CAC approved for quality. The Hansen Collection possess a MS65+ example for the date.
