(c. 1779) Rhode Island Ship Medal, with wreath. PCGS graded MS-62. Here is another outstanding example of this popular colonial issue. The surfaces are a satiny gray color and the coin is boldly struck throughout. There is a mint made clip at the top of the date, visible on both sides, but it is small and unimportant. Breen estimates that only 6 are known with a question, PCGS reports only 5 have been graded of this variety, this is the third best with a couple of slightly better ones ahead. One for the specialist who demands top quality and rarity.
Estimated Value $2,500 - 3,000.

Realized $3,450
