1779 Rhode Island Ship Token PCGS MS60 (Wreath Below, Pewter)

DLRC #: 1649821 // PCGS #: 585

The featured design on the Rhode Island Ship token depicts the British victory in the 1778 Battle of Rhode Island. Used as British propaganda with the intention of keeping the Dutch from joining the Revolutionary War. Pewter struck examples are rare. Brilliant eye appeal and little wear. Grey and golden surfaces with underlying luster apparent. A truly stunning numismatic and historical item.
