    Hate to contradict you AR but the coin is actually bronze. By 1860 most of the world stopped producing coins in pure copper but most of the general public still calls bronze coins "copper." Also it has an S mint mark for San Francisco which some may find interesting.

    Thanks AR, glad you feel that way. Here is one more clarification, many of the pre-1925 coins are without any mint marks and they are from the Philadelphia mint. After 1924 the mint mark M for Manila shows up and during WWII even Denver mint produces coins. By the time you, me and a few others here get going we could have a solid numismatic society going here on this site.

    Yes my 2010 edition SCWC, I am sorry to say doesn't mention all the mints but I think that the Red Book and US Coin Digest might, I remember that they did years ago. (Do you have a copy of these handy; I don't anymore.) I'll have to ask my few remaining friends that still work on the SCWC if the Philippine mint listings have been corrected or completed. During that time period only the Philadelphia mint made proofs in the U.S.

    I know how you feel.

    I just had a nice chat with Tom Michael at KP and they will change the vague "(US)" to (P) Philadelphia. Whenever they put something in ( ) that means it is not actually on the coin.

    The guy who wrote all the token books died last week and also keep in mind that his goal was not to have a complete listing but just to show a little bit of everything.
