This is a bright & beautiful satiny example of the 1936 Texas commemorative half dollar issued by the Philadelphia mint.  It is graded MS67+ by NGC and adorned with a CAC endorsement as an outstanding example of the grade. This coin shows outstanding mint luster in the hand and has a beutiful, uniform honey-gold tone throughout.  Of the >1,500 1936 examples graded by NGC, only 14 grade finer.  

Designed by Texan Pompeo Coppini, the Texas commemorative half dollar was designed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the independence of Texas.  The Texas Declaration of Independence was signed on March 2, 1836 by 59 delegates of the settlers in Mexican Texas to “…constitute a free, Sovereign, and independent republic…” thereby creating the Republic of Texas.  Nine years later, Texas would join the United States as the 28th state in the union (December 29,1845).
