Description:
Stunning 1937 Texas Commemorative Half Dollar, MS68 NGC
1937 50C Texas MS68 NGC. The design of the Texas commemorative half dollar, especially on the reverse, created considerable controversy within the numismatic community. Several detailed design elements were presented, including the goddess Liberty, the Alamo, six flags, and medallions of Sam Houston and Stephen Austin. Comments ranged from the design being a "perfect hodgepodge" to being "... the classic triumph of how much can be successfully crowded onto a coin." The stunning MS68 specimen offered in this lot is nearly brilliant save for wisps of occasional light tan color, and exhibits sharply impressed motifs. The surfaces reveal great luster and are immaculately preserved. A few trivial reverse rim marks are mentioned for the sake of accuracy. Census: 7 in 68, 0 finer (2/06).(Registry values: N2998) (NGC ID# 28LX, PCGS# 9390)
