Beautiful Half Dollar Set

1938 Texas Centennial Commemorative PDS Set.

Pompeo Coppini, a Texas sculptor who had maintained a studio in New York City since 1922, was selected to prepare designs for the new coins. Coppini's obverse depicted a large eagle perched on a branch, displayed against a five-pointed star in the background, with inscriptions surrounding-a departure from standard practice, for the eagle motif was traditionally reserved for the reverse of American coinage.

The reverse of the Texas Centennial half dollar was one of the most ornate created for a commemorative coin of this period. Within the confined space available several highly detailed elements were presented including the goddess Victory, winged and draped, kneeling slightly to the observer's right, an olive branch in her right hand, and her left hand resting on a representation of the Alamo, the most famous shrine in Texas history. Above is the word LIBERTY on a scroll, behind which are six flags. Beneath the wingtips of Victory are two medallions depicting Texas heroes General Sam Houston and Stephen Austin.

Includes 3 coins of 1938, 1938-S and 1938-D

Graded MS 64 by PCGS.
