US – Philippines 1 Peso 1908s

US - Philippines 1 Peso 1908s

A new coin I picked up (actually this is a coin from the lot), USPI 1 Peso 1908s. Looks like a decent XF-AU (details) and is toned on both sides, no major nicks or dents as far as I can see but the coin does have hairline scratches. I have this one listed up on my ebay.com account for 28usd + 6usd shipping fee. Anybody interested can send me a private message here or email: carloderek@yahoo.com, sms 09157695204.
