Seller: coinfucious (5,444) 100%, Location: Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Ships to: US, Item: 123381589895 Up for auction is a US Philippines One Peso 1905-S Straight Serif "1" w/Chop Marks RARE! These are very rare to find, since most of these 1905's have a curved serif on the 1. Another rare thing is this has chop marks. The Chinese would do trade with "foreign invaders", and weren't very trusting. So each merchant had their own die punch with their characters on it, and would punch this into the coin to make sure it was real, and not just silver plated, giving it a "chop mark". If the merchant sees his mark, he knows he has already checked it for purity, and wouldn't punch it again. Very interesting part of history. These can go for several hundred dollars, if you check. Will start out low and see where it goes. Thanks! I have collected coins for over 50 years, so I have a lot of items you might be interested in.
