TWENTY CENTAVO BUSINESS STRIKES
The Twenty Centavos is another killer series. A friend who's been collecting the US-Philippines for the past 12 years recently sent us a want list for the 20 Centavos in any unc to 64. There were at the least, more than a dozen holes on it, which means that after 12 years of collecting, he was able to nail down only half of the 20 Centavos in unc.
The 1903-S, the famous 1909-S, and the 1915-S are 3 stopper dates. There's an interesting variety on the 1916-S when one of the dies was apparently struck with the 6 at a 7 degree shift from the regular 6. It's an interesting variety but adds only a modest amount of extra value.
