I'm from the Philippines, and aside from the fake trade, morgan, flowing hair, etc dollar coins; there's also alot for fake 8r dos mundos here.
The fact that the Philippines has many fake coins is not a surprise based on what I know of history. Remember one important fact - not all fakes are worthless. There are two types of fakes - Contemporary Counterfeits made at the same time as the coin they copy and Numismatic Forgeries which are recently made fakes meant to fool collectors. The old fakes the Contemporary Counterfeits are often worth a substantial amount of money.
So if I were you I would learn to tell the two types apart and hunt for the early counterfeit types known to have been used in your country.
