I have already presented previously some coins from my Classic Commemoratives 50 Piece Type Set:
- First seven coins - http://goccf.com/t/329826.
- The next seven coins - http://goccf.com/t/335441
Now I reached the 25 mark for the set (25 out of 50 - 50% milestone!). New 11 coins are shown below.
Which one is the most interesting? I have my favorite but look forward to knowing your opinion.

Eye candy.
I have a few commemoratives 1892- 1954 myself, but only in about MS60 or 61 average, so what I see here makes me a bit envious.
I certainly hope that your set will be complete at some momentous time in your life, it will certainly be worth your effort.

Keep at it.

I like the sharp strike characteristics of the Illinois Half.

Like everybody else:
Wow!

Well done.
And you're not taking the cheap route.
Nice grades on those coins.

Looking good, SVI! Thanks for sharing them with us.

Being a North Carolinian, I'm naturally going to say the Roanoke is my favorite and the only one I have in a coin coffin. I'm sure the Isabella set you back a couple of bucks. I've always been a fan of the Art Deco eagle on the Bridgeport and the ship on the Delaware. Every time I see the Pilgrim and the Indian on the Rhode Island greeting one another by "slapping 5s" I have a good laugh!

Most impressive, congratulations! My favorite would be the Connecticut because of that Deco eagle, which is just a triumph.

Agree! From these 11 coins, the Wisconsin is my favorite. See below the additional photo. Unfortunately, both photos do not properly reflect the coin. In reality, the reverse (arm) is white and the obverse (badger) is evenly toned with the light-gold color. Very nice and attractive in hands.

Well done so far - concur based on the photos that your Wisconsin has special eye appeal. Looking forward to your continued journey through this type set.

These are so very nice! I really like the York with the Wisconsin being a close second. Can't wait to see your progress.
