Hello all, Is there anyone out there who collects US/Philippines coins, with a focus on die varieties? I'm getting really frustrated trying to find a copy (ANY copy!) of Lyman Allen's "US/Philippines Coins" to help in variety attribution. Any help would be greatly appreciated.1 month ago
Any Us/Philippines variety collectors out there?
LOL, just found a copy in the library. Send my request for an account. But feel free to respond if you want to continue the conversation.1 month ago
Well worn Copper
I casually collect some pre-1947 Philippine issues, and have quite a few on the "Heroes of the Revolution" (circa 1966-67) pattens in copper, but nothing else. I have followed commemoratives in the Krause world coin catalogs, which is where i get most of my information. Unfortunately, I've found a good deal of Philippine coinage desperately needs updating in a proper guidebook.1 month ago
Agreed. Allen's book is the go to for what I collect, but is near impossible to find, even in outdated editions, which is why I'm thankful for the ANA library.Popped over to your post on the HOTF patterns...that Imelda Marcos proof is gorgeous.1 month ago
