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.

*I’m finally starting to unload some of my own silver. Picture above is of a US Philippines 1945s 50 Centavos silver coin struck during the time the Philippines was under the US. Only two dates (coins) are from this series namely 1944s (19,187,000 mintage) and 1945s (18,120,000). The pieces I have range from AU to UNC all with great details and luster. I actually have around 40+ pieces for sale for 300 each as of today 1 – 12 – 2014. Interested parties can contact me via my blog or sms 09157695204. ( I also posted them for sale on my other sites – sulit, facebook page: currency store and on eBay).
