1935S U.S. Texas Commemorative Half Dollar
Beginning with the Columbian Exposition in 1892 and continuing into the 1950's the U.S. Mint produced what collectors today refer to as "Classic U.S. Commemoratives". Each coin was legal tender and thus has a denomination. Many of these were issued over several years and may have more than one date and mint mark. The Texas Centennial series is one such series and was issued from 1934 - 1938 with the 1935 through 1938 examples minted at Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco.
The Texas commemorative design is one of the most complex and intricate designs of the classic commemorative era. An eagle standing boldy with the Lone Star in the background on the obverse and the allegorical figure of winged victory on the reverse are inspiring symbols of the Texas fight for independence.
This 1935S Texas Commemorative has stunning luster and virtually no marks. A brilliant example of this beautiful coin.
