Set Description
USA-Philippines Pedigreed Coins & Medals. All of the coins and medals in this set have famous pedigrees and spectacular eye appeal. Many are extremely rare "Condition Census" examples.

LOUIS E. ELIASBERG SR. COLLECTION
Louis Eliasberg (1896-1976) accomplished what no one had accomplished before or since. He built a collection of regular issue United States coins comprising all then-known dates and mint marks. He is the only person to ever build a complete set of U.S. coins. The Eliasberg collection is the finest group of United States coins ever sold at auction. This is considered the most desirable pedigree for any coin to have, as it is a virtual guarantee that a coin is choice, original and appealing. After Eliasberg's death his collection was divided between his two children. The Eliasberg (United States) gold coins were auctioned by Bowers and Ruddy in 1982. The Eliasberg (United States) Copper, Nickel, and Silver coins were auctioned by Bowers and Merena in two sales in 1996 and 1997. The Eliasberg U.S./Philippine coins were auctioned by Heritage Auctions in January 2007 (Heritage Auctions - January New York Signature World Coin Auction #425).

ERIC P. NEWMAN COLLECTION (ERIC P. NEWMAN NUMISMATIC EDUCATION SOCIETY)
The Eric P. Newman Collection was carefully assembled and curated over a period of 90 years by noted numismatic writer and researcher Eric P. Newman, who at 102 years old continues to be active in his scholarly pursuits. The Eric P. Newman collection is known for its incredible depth and quality. Many numismatists consider the Eric P. Newman Collection to be the last of the vaunted old-time coin collections, ranking in importance alongside such highly regarded names as Eliasberg, Pittman and Garrett. Selections of World Coins from this phenomenal and historic collection were certified by NGC and offered by Heritage Auctions on January 14-16 2014. The specimens sold in that sale were from the extensive collection of the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society (a Missouri not-for-profit corporation) and have been assembled over a period of 90 years. Proceeds of the sale of all items were used exclusively for supplementing the Society's museum operations and scholarly numismatic research efforts and for the benefit of other not-for-profit institutions selected by the Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society for public purposes.

THE MAHAL COLLECTION

DR. GREG PINEDA PHILIPPINE COLLECTION
Dr. Greg Pineda is one of the foremost collectors of Philippine coins and notes. Philippine expert Neil Shafer (the author of "United States Territorial Coinage For The Philippine Islands") describes the Pineda Collection as "the finest Philippine numismatic collection that has ever been accomplished". When Dr. Pineda decided that it was time to sell his collection the sale attracted Philippine collectors from around the world and was widely regarded as a once in a lifetime event. The Dr. Greg Pineda Philippine Collection was auctioned by Lyn Knight Currency Auctions on June 10, 2012 at the Memphis IPMS.

BILL WEBER COLLECTION
Bill Weber was one of the foremost collectors of So-Called Dollars and one of the co-authors of the definitive So-Called Dollar reference "So-Called Dollars: An Illustrated Standard Catalog". After Mr. Weber’s death his So-Called Dollar collection was auctioned by Holabird-Kagin Americana (HKA Auction #2 - December 2, 2008).

JUST HAVING FUN COLLECTION
The "Just Having Fun" collection ranks among one of the finest USA-Philippines collections ever assembled. "Just Having Fun” has had the number 1 PCGS Registry set in every USA-Philippine catagory since 2005 and is the number 1 All Time Finest set for all Eras in those (19) categories. The "Just Having Fun" USA-Philippines Type set was the top ranked NGC Set in it's category from 2004 through 2010. Between August 12, 2012 and December 30, 2012 a number of coins from the "Just Having Fun" collection were featured in Teletrade auctions.

THE WALDEN PHILIPPINE TERRITORIAL COLLECTION

DR. ROGER R. MCFADDEN COLLECTION
Dr. Roger R. McFadden is a retired pathologist best known as the author of the highly respected numismatic reference book "The Numismatic Aspects Of Leprosy". Dr. McFadden's collection of Philippine and Leper Colony coins rank among the finest ever assembled. In September 2014 Dr. McFadden's collection was featured in Heritage Long Beach Expo World Coins Signature Auction.

RAY CZAHOR COLLECTION
Ray Czahor is a one of the world's foremost authorities on Philippine Coins,Tokens, Medals and Currency. He is a contributor to "U.S./Philippine Coins" by Lyman L. Allen, and the Philippine sections of the Red Book, and Krause Publications "Standard Catalog of World Coins", and "Standard Catalog of World Paper Money". Ray is the owner of Cookie Jar Collectibles and the organizer of the Philippine Collectors Forum. He is the author of "The Philippine 1906-S Peso. Die Characteristics: Genuine and Fake". Rays reference collection of Spanish Philippine Countermarked coins was featured in the Stacks Bowers 2015 NYINC Auction and is considered the finest and most extensive collection of Spanish Philippine Countermarked coins ever assembled.

View Coin Louis E. Eliasberg Sr. Collection United States Bronze 1/2C 1905 USA-PHIL EX. LOUIS E. ELIASBERG SR. KM-162 PCGS PF 64 RD Specifications: Bronze, 40 Grains (95% copper, 5% zinc and tin), 17.5 mm.

Business strikes of the Half Centavos coin were struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1903 and 1904. A limited number of Proof Half Centavos were produced at the Philadelphia mint from 1903 through 1908.

The obverse design shows a young Filipino male seated next to an anvil holding a hammer in his right hand, his left arm raised, and in the background to his left is a billowing volcano. The reverse design depicts an eagle with spread wings perched atop an American shield.

The Half Centavos coin was poorly accepted by the public and no further business strikes of this denomination were made after 1904. For lack of use over 7,500,000 Half Centavos were withdrawn from circulation. Most of these were sent back to the United States where they were melted and then re-coined into One Centavos pieces in 1908. That leaves a little less than 60% of the origional total mintage still available to collectors today.

The 1905 Half Centavo is a PROOF ONLY ISSUE with a mintage of 471 coins. The PCGS population for the 1905 Half Centavos in PF-64 RED is 2 coins with only 4 specimens graded higher. The combined NGC/PCGS certified population is 2/5. This specimen is a flashy golden red near-gem from the Louis E. Eliasberg Sr. Collection.

The Half Centavo was designed by Melicio Figueroa. The obverse design shows a young Filipino male seated next to an anvil holding a hammer in his right hand, his left arm raised, and in the background to his left is a billowing volcano. The reverse design depicts an eagle with spread wings perched atop an American shield.

Business strikes of the Half Centavo coin were struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1903 (12,084,000) and 1904 (5,654,000). The Half Centavo coin was poorly accepted by the public and no further business strikes of this denomination were made after 1904. For lack of use over 7,500,000 Half Centavos were withdrawn from circulation. Most of these were sent back to the United States where they were melted and then re-coined into One Centavo pieces in 1908. That leaves a little less than 60% of the origional total mintage still available to collectors today.

A limited number of Proof Half Centavos were produced at the Philadelphia mint from 1903 through 1906 and again in 1908. The mintage figures for proof Half Centavos is as follows:1903 (2,558), 1904 (1,355), 1905 (471), 1906 (500), and 1908 (500). The 1905, 1906, and 1908 Half Centavos were PROOF ONLY ISSUES.

This lovely full red SUPERB GEM is pedigreed from the Dr. Greg Pineda Philippine Collection. Although the 1903 Proof Half Centavo had a mintage of 2,558 coins full red GEMs are EXTREMELY RARE. The combined PCGS/NGC population of 1903 Proof Half Centavos in PF67 RD is only 10 specimens with 1 graded higher.

The obverse design of the 1903 through 1936 Centavo shows a young Filipino male seated next to an anvil holding a hammer in his right hand, his left arm raised, and in the background to his left is a billowing volcano. The reverse design depicts an eagle with spread wings perched atop an American shield. Business strikes using this design were made at the Philadelphia Mint from 1903 through 1905, the San Francisco Mint from 1908 through 1920 and the Manila Mint from 1920 through 1936. The Manila mint was the only United States branch mint ever established outside the continental United States. Proof issues were made at the Philadelphia Mint from 1903 through 1906 and again in 1908.

This rare PR66 RD beauty was purchased at the Dr. Greg Pineda Philippine Collection Auction. The auction catelog describes this specimen as "a fabulous coin, just a wonderful beauty". GEM PROOF One Centavos in Full Red are EXTREMELY RARE. The combined NGC/PCGS population for this coin in PF66 RED is eight coins with only six specimens graded higher.

The 1903 through 1928 Five Centavos have the same obverse and reverse design as the Half Centavo and One Centavo coins. Business strikes were made at the Philadelphia Mint in 1903 and 1904, the San Francisco Mint from 1916 through 1919, and the Manila Mint from 1920 through 1928. A limited number of proof Five Centavos coins were made at the Philadelphia Mint from 1903 through 1908.

The 1905 Five Centavos is a PROOF ONLY ISSUE with a mintage of only 471. Of the 471 pieces made, this has to be one of the very best. It is beautiful! This specimen is pedigreed from the Dr, Greg Pineda Philippine Collection.

View Coin Dr. Greg Pineda Philippine Collection United States SILVER 10C 1906 USA-PHIL EX. DR. GREG PINEDA KM-165 PCGS PF 66 This beautiful specimen from the Dr. Greg Pineda Collection is evenly and beautifully blue toned on the obverse, and has more brilliant but lovely shades of golden toning on the reverse. An exquisite offering of a rare coin.

The obverse design by Melicio Figueroa features a young Filipino woman standing to the right in a flowing dress while striking an anvil with a hammer held in her right hand, the left hand is raised and holding an olive branch. In the background is a billowing volcano. The reverse design, also by Melicio Figueroa, depicts an eagle with spread wings perched atop an American shield. At a weight of 2.69 Grams of .900 Silver the Large (17.5 mm) Ten Centavos, minted from 1903 through 1906 had a silver content equal to the U.S. Barber Dime. With an official exchange rate of two Philippine Pesos to one U.S. dollar it was not long before the value of the silver content in the Large Ten Centavos exceeded its face value and many were melted during the great silver melts of the period. Lyman Allen estimates that less than 20% of all 1903-1906 silver coinages exist today in any grade.

Business strikes of the Large Ten Centavos were coined at the Philadelphia Mint in 1903 and 1904 and the San Francisco Mint in 1903 and 1904. Proofs of the Large Ten Centavos were made in very limited quantities at the Philadelphia Mint from 1903 through 1906.

Proof sets were not sold in any sort of protective packaging or cases but were contained in plain paper envelopes and each coin was wrapped individually in thin tissue paper. This method of packaging has contributed to the micro thin hairline scratches seen on most proof coins as well as the heavy toning often seen. GEM proof coins are very scarce.

The 1906 Ten Centavos is a PROOF ONLY ISSUE with a mintage of only 500 coins. The combined NGC/PCGS Population is 17/14 (NGC Population 5/4, PCGS Population 12/10)
View Coin Dr. Greg Pineda Philippine Collection United States PHILIPPINES BRONZE SC$1 1920 HK-450 WILSON DOLLAR MANILA MINT OPENING EX. DR. GREGORY PINEDA NGC UNC DETAILS So-Called Dollar, 1920 (M) HK-450 Wilson Dollar. Bronze 38.2mm, medal commemorating the "Opening of the Manila Mint".

The Bronze medal commemorating the "Opening of the Manila Mint" was struck at the U.S. Manila Mint in mid-July 1920. Speaker Osmena of the Filipino House of Representatives struck off the first medal during the July 15, 1920 opening day ceremony and 2000 specimens were struck on the first day. Up to 3700 Bronze Medals were produced and sold for fifty cents at the time of issue.

Many of the Bronze medals went unsold for years and were still in the Philippine Treasury at the outbreak of WWII. When Japan invaded the Philippines the Commonwealth government moved the contents of the Philippine Treasury from Manila to the island fortress of Corregidor. Prior to the fall of Corregidor 16 million Pesos in silver coins and many Silver and Bronze Wilson Dollars were dumped into Manila Bay to prevent there seizure by the Japanese. Although many of these coins and medals were salvaged after the war the majority are heavily corroded from their long immersion in salt water.

Bronze Wilson Dollars in a high state of preservation are much scarcer than the Silver medals. NGC and PCGS combined have only certified 22 Bronze Wilson dollars in MS60 and above. Unfortunately population reports for details graded coins are not available.

This attractive specimen from the Dr. Gregory Pineda Philippine Collection is 90% red with a touch of iridescent blue toning.

In 1907 the rising price of silver necessitated a reduction in the fineness, size, and weight of U.S. Philippine silver coinage. The size of the Twenty Centavos was reduced from 23 mm to 20 mm, which was only .5 mm smaller than the then circulating Five Centavo coin. Since all U.S. Philippine coins used the same basic reverse design mix-ups were bound to happen. In 1918 a Twenty Centavo reverse die was accidently paired with a regular Five Centavo obverse die. The reverse of the resulting Mule coin has a smaller date and wider shield than the normal Five Centavo coin. Although the exact number of Muled coins that were produced before the error was discovered is unknown few specimens survive today and most are well worn. Mint state examples of the 1918-S Five Centavo Mule are very rare. NGC and PCGS combined have certified only 71 examples of the 1918-S Mule in any grade and only 17 of these have been Mint State. Of the Mint State examples only eight have graded Choice Mint State of higher.

This sharply defined light gray example has brilliant luster and excellent eye appeal. This specimen is pedigreed from the famous Mahal Collection (also known as the "Just Having Fun Collection").

View Coin Just Having Fun Collection United States BRONZE 1/2C 1904 USA-PHIL KM-162 PCGS PF 66 RB The 1904 Proof Half Centavo had a mintage of 1,355. Despite its relatively high mintage compared to other years in this series proof 1904 Half Centavos in this grade are much rarer than the mintage figures would suggest. PCGS Coin Facts lists the "Relative Rarity by Type" for 1904 Half Centavos in PR65RB or above as the rarest in the series and assigns it a grade rarity of R-8.5. Of the five years that proof Half Centavos were produced 1904 is the only year that no specimens have been graded PF67 by any of the major grading services. Not only is PF66 the Top Grade for this year but the total number of available specimens in this grade is extremely small. The Combined PCGS/NGC Population for 1904 Half Centavos in PF66 is only 3 PF66BN, 4 PF66RB, and 3 PF66RD.

The obverse of this rareTop Pop specimen is a beautiful uniform Dark Cherry Red. The reverse is 90% Red with Dark Cherry Red periphery toning. A truly beautiful coin!

This beautiful rainbow toned SUPERB GEM is from the "Just Having Fun Collection". The 1908 Half Centavo is a PROOF ONLY ISSUE with a mintage of only 500. The Combined NGC/PCGS population for this rare date in PF67 is only three specimens with none graded finer.

The Half Centavo was designed by Melicio Figueroa. The obverse design shows a young Filipino male seated next to an anvil holding a hammer in his right hand, his left arm raised, and in the background to his left is a billowing volcano. The reverse design depicts an eagle with spread wings perched atop an American shield.

Business strikes of the Half Centavo coin were struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1903 (12,084,000) and 1904 (5,654,000). The Half Centavo coin was poorly accepted by the public and no further business strikes of this denomination were made after 1904. For lack of use over 7,500,000 Half Centavos were withdrawn from circulation. Most of these were sent back to the United States where they were melted and then re-coined into One Centavo pieces in 1908.

When the Manila Mint opened in July 1920 it took over production of Fifty Centavo coins for the U.S. Territory of the Philippines. Prior to that time Fifty Centavo coins had been manufactured in the continental United States at either the Philadelphia or San Francisco Mints and transported to the Philippines. The Fifty Centavos struck at the Manila Mint in 1920 and 1921 used the same obverse and reverse designs as the 1907 - 1919 Fifty Centavos and were struck to the same specifications. A notable feature of the 1920(M) and 1921(M) Fifty Centavos was that they had no Mint Mark.

The obverse design by Melicio Figueroa features a young Filipino woman standing to the right in a flowing dress while striking an anvil with a hammer held in her right hand, the left hand is raised and holding an olive branch. In the background is a billowing volcano. The reverse design, also by Melicio Figueroa, depicts an eagle with spread wings perched atop an American shield.

View Coin Bill Weber Collection United States PHILIPPINES SILVER SC$1 1920 HK-449 WILSON DOLLAR MANILA MINT OPENING BILL WEBER COLLECTION NGC MS 62 So-Called Dollar, 1920 (M) HK-449 Wilson Dollar. Silver 38.2mm, 440 grains, medal commemorating the opening of the Manila Mint.

The dies for the " Wilson Dollar" were cut by George Morgan, who was the Mint's Chief Engraver in 1920, and who was also responsible for the U.S. Morgan Silver Dollar.

The obverse presents a well executed portrait of U.S. President Woodrow Wilson.

The reverse shows a representation of "Juno Moneta" (the goddess of money and minting) kneeling and watching over a nude youth who is pouring planchets (coin blanks) into a coining press. The design used is a modification of a much earlier Morgan design that was used on several of the U.S. Assay Commissions Annual Medals in the 1880s and 1890s.

Mintage 2,200 Silver (HK-449), 3,700 Bronze (HK-450), and 5 Gold (HK-1031). The surviving number of Wilson Dollars particularly in mint state is much less as many specimens were lost during WWII. When Japan invaded the Philippines in 1942 the U.S. government dumped 16 million Pesos in silver coins into Manila Bay to prevent it's seizure by the Japanese. Many Silver and Bronze Wilson Dollars were included in this dumping. Although many of these coins and medals were salvaged after the war the majority are heavily corroded from their long immersion in salt water. All Wilson Dollars are scarce particularily in true Mint State. All Wilson Dollars are scarce particularily in true Mint State. According to NGC and PCGS online population reports (3/10/2014) NGC and PCGS combined have only certified 120 Silver and 22 Bronze Wilson Dollars in MS60 and above.

This specimen has a particularly distinguished pedegree in that it is from the "Bill Weber Collection". Bill Weber was one of the foremost collectors of So-Called Dollars and one of the co-authors of the definitive So-Called Dollar reference "So-Called Dollars:An Illistrated Standard Catalog". After Mr. Weber 's death his So-Called Dollar collection was auctioned by Holabird-Kagin Americana (HKA Auction #2 - December 2, 2008). This specimen was lot # 10414 1201. It is described in the auction catalog as "A rare spectacular uncirculated example with very original toned surfaces. Mint green hues along the edges with an even mixture of grays and tans centrally. Certainly one of the finest toned examples to exist. Reverse is unusually well struck. According to Weber 's personal notes, "Nice early strike."

The obverse and reverse designs of the 1930 through 1935 (reduced size and weight) Five Centavos is the same as the 1903 through 1928 Five Centavos.

In 1907 a rise in the price of silver forced the reduction of the fineness and weight for all Philippine silver issues. The reduced size Twenty Centavos coins of 1907 - 1929 had a diameter of 21mm and were easily confused with the 21.3 mm Five Centavos of 1903 through 1928. This confusion resulted in a mismatching of dies for these two denominations in 1918 and again in 1928. A solution was found by reducing the diameter of the Five Centavos coin to 19 mm beginning in 1930. The reduced size and weight Five Centavos were made at the Manila Mint from 1930 through 1932, and again in 1934 and 1935.

In war time nickel and copper are strategic materials critical to a nations war effort. During the WWII Japanese occupation of the Philippines (1942 -1945) many pre-war Five Centavos were collected melted down and sent back to Japan

With an official exchange rate of two Philippine Pesos to one U.S. dollar it was not long before the value of the silver content in the Large Ten Centavos exceeded its face value and many were melted during the great silver melts of the period. In 1906 the silver coins held in reserve by the Treasury to back the Philippine paper money then in circulation were exported to the U.S. for re-coinage into the reduced size and weight pieces which followed in 1907. Lyman Allen estimates that less than 20% of all 1903-1906 silver coinages exist today in any grade. Business strikes were coined at the Philadelphia Mint in 1903 and 1904 and the San Francisco Mint in 1903 and 1904.

No silver coins were produced for circulation at the Philadelphia Mint in 1904. All of the Ten Centavos, Twenty Centavos, Fifty Centavos, and Pesos struck that year were made to fill an order for SPECIAL MINT SETS that were sold at the Philippine Exibit at the 1904 World's Fair. 10,000 of these SPECIAL MINT SETS were produced. Only 3,254 sets were sold at the World's Fair. The Philippine Treasury sold another 500 sets and the remaining 6.246 sets were then put into general circulation.

ROGER MCFADDEN, KM-2, MCFADDEN-752 PLATE COIN NGC AU Details 1913 Culion Leper Colony 1 Centavo (Type II), EX. Dr. Roger R. McFadden, McFadden #752 Plate Coin

In 1906 the Bureau of Health for the U.S. Territory of the Philippines established a colony for leper patients on the small island of Culion in the China Sea. For health reasons, the decision was made that the leper colony should have a separate coinage of its own which would not circulate in the rest of the Philippines.

One of the fascinating features of the monetary system in the leper colony was the strict regulations which separated the circulation of government coinage and the special "Leper Coins". In the colony proper "Leper Money" was the only legal medium of exchange. Government coinage was not allowed within the colony and non-lepers that did business in the colony had to exchange their "Government Money" for "Leper Money" before they entered the colony. When they exited the colony they exchanged their "Leper Money" for "Government Money". In this way "Leper Money" only circulated within the colony. The police strictly enforced these regulations and violators were subject to a fine of not more than Fifteen Pesos, imprisonment of up to one month or both.

The first issue of "Leper Money" consisted of Half Centavo, One Centavo, Five Centavos, Ten Centavos, Twenty Centavos, and One Peso coins which were struck in aluminum by the firm of Frank and Company, Manila in 1913. The common obverse design was a "Caduceus" surrounded by the inscription "Bureau Of Health" at the top and the date below. The reverse used a simple inscription of value as its central design. "Culion Leper Colony" was inscribed at the top, and "Philippine Islands" below. The 1913 issue carried no mint marks.

Although not recognized by Krause there are two die varieties of the 1913 Cullion Leper Colony 1 Centavo.

In Type I (McFadden #751) the stars on the reverse are near (about 1.0 mm from) the legend. The "C" in CENTAVO is over the second "I" in PHILIPPINES, and the "O" in CENTAVO is over the "L" in ISLANDS.

In Type II (McFadden #752) the stars on the reverse are far (about 1.5 mm from) the legend. The "C" in CENTAVO is over the second "P" in PHILIPPINES, and the "O" in CENTAVO is over the "A" in ISLANDS.

This specimen is an example of Type ll (McFadden #752) and the PLATE COIN for this die variety in "The Numismatic Aspects Of Leprosy.

The 1913 CLC One Centavo is semi-key coin in this difficult to complete series. Most surviving specimens of this date are well worn with corrosion and environmental damage. Only one 1913 One Centavo has received a numerical grade from NGC. While this AU details specimen has excessive surface hairlines it is nevertheless one of the finest surviving examples of this scarce date. This specimen is from the collection of Dr. Roger R.

All Culion Leper Colony coins were routinely disinfected by the Philippine Health Service. The caustic chemicals used in the disinfection process had an extremely deleterious effect on aluminum. By 1922 it was apparent that the Aluminum Cullion Leper Colony coinage of 1913 and 1920 were just not holding up and a more acid resistant alloy needed to be found. Starting in 1922 all Culion Leper Colony coins were struck in a Copper-Nickel alloy of 75% copper and 25% nickel.

The obverse design of the1922PM Cullion Leper Colony One Peso features a caduceus as the central device and carries the inscriptions "PHILIPPINE HEALTH SERVICE" and the date "1922". The reverse has the denomination "1 PESO" as the central devise. The encircled monogram initials "PM" (for Philippine Mint) are stamped in incuse between the number "1" and the word "Peso". The incuse "PM" Mint Mark was most likely added by hand as there is considerable variation in the orientation and exact placement of the Mint Mark. The reverse inscriptions are "CULION LEPER COLONY" and "PHILIPPINE ISLANDS".

The 1922PM One Peso has two die varieties. Type l (KM-16) has a straight wing on the caduceus. The much rarer Type ll (KM-17) has a curved wing on the caduceus.
