Congratulations to coin928 for his well deserved Best Presented Set award. Assembling a complete collection of high grade USA-Philippine One Centavos is a tremendous accomplishment and this set is a real beauty. Coin928 always does a wonderful job in presenting his sets and this set is no exception.
All of the coins in this difficult to complete series have excellent high resolution photographs and comprehensive and informative descriptions. If you haven't viewed this amazing set yet please do so, it is quite an educational experience. http://coins.www.collectors-society.com/registry/coins/SetListing.aspx?PeopleSetID=34793&Ranking=all
The NGC judges were right on in selecting this set for a Best Presented set award. My only quarrel with the judges' comments is that in their discussion of this sets noteworthy condition rarities they failed to mention the beautiful Top Pop 1908 S/S One Centavo (Allen number 2.06a). This rare variety has a combined NGC/PCGS population of only two specimens in MS65 RB with none graded higher. In my opinion this specimen is the single finest example of this variety and could easily have graded Red rather than RB. Take a look for yourself. http://coins.www.collectors-society.com/WCM/CoinView.aspx?PeopleSetCoinID=1440949
