|Here is a relatively low mintage issue in the classic commemorative series. Only 50,030 Cleveland Centennial Great Lakes Exposition Commemorative Half Dollars were minted. The design features Moses Cleaveland on the obverse and an outline of the Great Lakes on the reverse, with several major cities highlighted with stars. This example of the 1936 Cleveland Half Dollar has been graded MS63 by PCGS and is encapsulated in an old green label holder which is approximately twenty years old. This example has a very original look to it. The coin has heavy toning on the obverse which is mostly a brown color, but some other colors show themselves when turned under a light, particularly along the rim. The reverse also shows some toning but it is much lighter. The toning is quite thick on both sides of the coin which mutes the luster of the coin somewhat, but a good amount of luster still pops through the toning. For the grade, the coin is very nice and free of any major hits or marks, though a few light marks can be found hidden in the thick toning. In all, this is a neat original example of the Cleveland commemorative.
