1935-S 50C Texas -- Improperly Cleaned -- NGC Details. Unc. Walter Breen, Anthony Swiatek, and others have criticized the Texas Centennial half dollar design for being jumbled, but Cornelius Vermeule differed in his opinion: "Coppini's commemorative half dollar is the classic triumph of how much can be successfully crowded on a coin. This coin has one of the greatest of the designs in the commemorative series, by an artist not otherwise widely associated with coins or even medals." Each side of this mint example is bright and untoned with muted luster from cleaning. All facets of the intricate design are sharply rendered. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
