Owner Comments:

Lyman Allen #4.15 (KM #164) - Mintage: 1,000,000

This coin is very well struck for a Manila mint issue. The stars and stripes of the shield are crisp & bold, but there are a few light marks to the right of the shield and in the vertical stripe portion of the shield itself. The obverse is equally well struck with excellent hair and facial details. The fingers on the right hand are very well defined as are the toes on the right foot. There There is a mark on Mt. Mayon and a slight deformation in the rim where it meets Mt. Mayon. Given the crisp outlines of the male figure, Mt. Mayon, the shield, and the eagles breast feathers and wing tips, this coin was probably struck from relatively fresh dies.

Varieties: None have been reported by Allen, however I have a raw coin which appears to have a repunched 9 in the date. I know of no other reported examples, but worth keeping in mind when looking at 1928 5 Centavos.
