    There are not many out there that are already PCGS graded. I have a complete set of the 1920-1930 coins ranging from F-XF (see set linked below) and none were purchased as PCGS graded. Almost all were purchased raw and submitted for grading later. A few were bought as NGC/ANACS-graded and then crossed. If you don't trust buying raw, and let's face it, these coins are a real roll of the dice (because they tended to clean coins used by lepers with acid and wire brushes), you can be a little more confident buying NGC or ANACS and then crossing. The most common type I've seen graded already (mostly NGC) is the 1913 1/2 centavo. The 1913 issues were minted privately while the 1920-1930 issues were minted at the US-run Manila Mint. Good luck finding an example!

    That’s a very nice collection of Culion coins, quite the accomplishment.

    Here's an AU piece from 1922 and the Manila Mint in a 6.0 Gen slab with a TrueView.
