Expert Comments

David Hall: The 1938 Texas issues were the last coins in the 1934-1938 Texas commemorative series. They were sold at an original issue price of $2.00 per coin, or $6 for a set of all three. They are the lowest mintages of the Texas series with mintages of 3780 for the Philadelphia Mint issue, 3775 for the Denver Mint issue, and 3814 for the San Francisco Mint issue. All three were saved at the time of issue and are often found in Superb Gem condition. And conversely, circulated examples all but don't exist. For some reason, the Philadelphia Mint issue is somewhat rarer than the Denver or San Francisco Mint issues in Superb Gem MS66 or MS67 condition. Most Philadelphia 1938 Texas examples have either frosty or somewhat satin luster.
