This is a great bracelet that features 7 "ten centavos Filipinas" coins. One of the coins at the clasp is 1903. All of the other 6 coins are from 1904 and have an s mint mark. After further research I found the the 1904 coins are fairly rare. All of these coins are Sterling silver and attached to two Sterling silver chains that suspend each coin in line. The clasp has been replaced with a lobster claw. This bracelet is in amazing condition. All of the coins are very ledge-able. The only condition issues would be the two end coins, they have been drilled to accommodate the closures, and there appears to be a bit of silver soldier on the two eagle sides from attaching the clasps.

"Philippines Coinage under U.S. Sovereignty"
"The Philippines was ceded to the United States as part of the settlement between Spain and the United States at the end of the Spanish-American War in 1898. A self-governing commonwealth was established in 1935. The U.S. granted the Republic of The Philippines full independence on July 4, 1946.
During the United States administration, Congress was responsible for issuing coinage. The first U.S./Philippine coins were minted in 1903 in Philadelphia and San Francisco and bear both the Identities of the United States and "Filipinas" (Spanish for The Philippines). During the commonwealth period, coinage was issued primarily at the Manila Mint ("M" mint mark). During the Japanese Occupation no Philippine coinage was issued. In 1944 and 1945 coins were only struck at the Philadelphia, Denver and San Francisco Mints."
