In 1934 and 1935, the Connecticut Tercentenary Commission issued a series of Bulletins that provided updates to the activities of the Commission, including the developing details of planned celebrations across the state and the latest available information on its various souvenir items. In addition to the commemorative half dollar, souvenirs of the Connecticut Tercentenary included an official medal, four different commemorative dinner plates (available in red or black!), special postcards, historical pamphlets/booklets, a special "license" plate for cars and a commemorative stamp issued by the Post Office.

The commemorative half-dollar, authorized by Congress in June 1934 for the 1935 Tercentenary, was a topic covered in several of the Bulletins. I thought it might be of interest to some here to have the chance to read these "official" communications about the coin as presented by the Commission while they were in the midst of the anniversary celebrations.


Tercentenary Bulletin No. 1 - October 1934


Tercentenary Bulletin No. 6 - March 1935


Tercentenary Bulletin No. 9 - May 1935


Tercentenary Bulletin No. 9 - May 1935 - Part II


Tercentenary Bulletin No. 12 - August 1935


Tercentenary Bulletin Final - December 1935

Great read. Absolutely my favorite commem, with both sides artistic gems in their own right. The eagle rivals that on the Bridgeport for its striking Deco design.

That eagle could be a hood ornament. Prety darn cool.

Your numismatic detective work knows no bounds, commems.
