I've had this coin for 50 years and always assumed it was uncirculated until I put it under the scope ? It has never removed from this package. Of course I didn't remove it and apologize for the pictures and grading may not be possible. What is the story behind the word trust being spelt with a V ?The San Antonio address on the package is a parking lot these days.
Thanks,
Ken

The Cellophane is preventing any honest assessment about the grade to be made.

Completely understand, should I remove it from the very delicate plastic to take photos and put it back ?
My grandfather ( now I'm a grandfather) gave this to me and that's a tuff decision.

Some very good info on the Texas commemorative coin series. I think one of the nicest in the entire commemorative series. Your coin in the sealed plastic looks like a very nice example that is likely in a mint state uncirculated condition. Very nice coin and even nicer to have remained in your family possession all these years.

If you guys don't think it will degrade the value I'll take it out of the package after a few replies ?

You have had the coin for 50 years. That tells me you are not planning on selling it. I don't think the packaging adds a lot of value. I would take it out, but keep the packaging
Maybe send it to get graded

You don't see classic commemoratives in the original packaging at all these days. You may be removing some value by freeing it. I'm on the fence...

I would have the mods move this to the commemoratives category and wait for member @commems to reply before you do anything..

I do want to remove it but I think I'll wait. I did read that they originally came in a different holder and didn't add much value. Thanks for the replies and maybe I'll take it out soon !

Sending it in for grading might be a good idea. Please show us large, complete pics of both sides with images right-side up.

Ok, I removed it and it is pretty. But its probably because it has sentimental value to me. When looking at it through the usb scope it looks like it has ware ?
What is the golden color ?
Thanks,
Ken

The old packaging may have failed this coin somewhat.
Now, perhaps best to have this coin slabbed, for it own protection. A close fitting hard capsule OK, if you don't wish to have it slabbed.

The patina not quite so attractive, to my eye. It makes the finer detail of the design harder to see at a glance.
Nevertheless,
the potential slabbed value would justify the cost of grading and shipping fees.

For my grading opinion, for what it's worth:
AU-58. (I needed the close up pictures to be able to say something.)
