1779 Rhode Island Ship Token PCGS MS63 (Wreath Below, Brass)

DLRC #: 1649822 // PCGS #: 587

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. Pleasant golden copper with deeper peripheral toning. Nice luster and prominent devices. A lovely and rare mint state brass example of this historical token.
