Pop 1. None Finer At NGC. Mintage Unknown. The Wreath Below Ship variety was the final issue of this popular token. This handsome Mint State piece has plenty of original antique gold color beneath an overlay of mottled gray-brown patina. Both sides of this piece are equally well defined with universally bold striking detail. Satiny in texture with an overall smooth appearance. Lustrous greenish-yellow surfaces. MORE ABOUT THIS PIECE: The obverse of Rhode Island Ship medals depict the flagship of British Admiral Lord Richard Howe and is anchored with the peripheral legend DE ADMIRALS FLAG van ADMIRAL HOWE 1779. The reverse shows Aquidneck island as the central motif with three warships to the left, about two dozen troops on the island, and soldiers fleeing in thirteen small boats to the right. The peripheral legend reads D'vlugtende AMERICAAN ENvan RHODE YLAND Augt 1778. PCGS Price Guide...$8000. No NGC price Guide Information.
