|This 1903 U.S.-Philippines Ten Centavos has been graded AU58 by ANACS. This coin was minted at the Philadelphia Mint for use in the Philippines which were a territory of the United States at the time. Because they were minted for use in a U.S. Territory, minted at the U.S. Mint in the United States and the coins say “United States of America” on them, many U.S. collectors are now starting to collect the U.S. Philippines coinage along with their U.S. coin collections. Even the Red Book of U.S. Coins has expanded their listings of USPI coinage, see pages 415-419 of the 2015 edition (411-415 of the 2014 edition). The coin is bright white, untoned and has full cartwheel luster on both sides. The plastic holder has many small marks and scratches that show in the photos and the coin is better than the photos may show. While there are some scattered marks on the coin and a small spot just after the last A of AMERICA, I was unable to see any actual wear on the piece, despite the assigned grade. A premium example of this first-year of issue U.S.-Philippines ten centavos that is excellent for the grade.
