I am disposing of my collection of Philippines. Here are some miscellaneous medals.
All prices include shipping. Payment by check or PPFF.
Happy to receive offers if you think my prices are off.
Better pics upon request.

Above is a group lot, all from El Oro. The medals are as follows:

1: 1951 Obv: Golden Jubilee of the Philippines Educational System
Rev: US Transport Thomas "600 Teachers Arrived in Manila" Aug 1, 1901
Gilt (?) bronze with original lacquer. UNC

2: Central Luzon Agricultural College First President Arcadio Matela
Gilt (?) bronze with original lacquer. UNC

3: A badge for the inauguration and installation of the first president
of the Central Luzon Agricultural College. Pin with ribbon included but detached.
Bronze RB UNC with slight handling on the reverse.

I believe 2 and 3 were given to attendees of the inauguration of the college's first president.

1: Labor Festival for Industrial Peace May 1 - June 1, 1952. Uniface brass (?) UNC with spot.
Maker unknown.

2: Manuel Roxas President 1946 (this may have been given at his inauguration).
Uniface brass AU. Maker G. Valdez.

3: First Philippines International Fair 1953. Enameled brass (?). Essentially UNC.
Maker Zamora.

Second Philippine Exposition 1914 First Prize. Uniface silver. VG with dings and light scratches on the front and many marks on the back.
Clearly it was well-loved by the recipient!

1951 Philippine Numismatic and Antiquarian Society (PNAS) medal for the 55th Anniversary of the death of Jose Rizal.
Gilt (?) bronze UNC with original lacquer. Maker El Oro/J. Tupaz.

    Everything went to Heritage for a weekly sale. Maybe 2-3 months from today.

    These medals have been slabbed and listed at Heritage. Good luck if anyone is bidding.

    Link to the lots.

    Congrats on the sale! Can you post some numbers realized for us?

    I have a handful of medals to sell and always wondered whether I should follow the route you described...

    Would love to learn more about your experience.

    You can click on the "link to lots" a few posts up and that will take you to the lots and prices realized.
    If you have Philippine medals that you no longer need, now is a good time to sell them as demand is up.
