It seems there are a select few who collect modern commemoratives on this sight but they have some great designs and some not so great. I've had time to review my set and here are some examples of the first Olympic designs.









Sorry for the glare and crud on the holders I guess I should take them out to photograph them.

I have those, plus the 1982 George Washington Half Dollars, 1986 Statue of Liberty Dollar and Half Dollars, 1987 Constitution Silver Dollars, 1990 Ike Centennial Dollar, and the coins from the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. I don't collect all of them, just the ones that peak my interest.

In reviewing my Proof collection I have found that my 1990 Eisenhower is a BU and my 1987 constitution, and 1986 Statue of liberty are badly fogged or "milky" as some one else had "coined" this state. I now have a few more to search for and the milky ones can go into the 90% stash.

Here's another foggy one.





Is moisture the cause of this or is it something else?

I have excluded the heavily milky examples and since I do not have a proof Ike, we will progress to the next of the series the Mt. Rushmore.





This is the only commemorative that was delivered in grey packaging.

Yotie, I am short the eight Atlanta dollars. I'm going to post a dollar a day just for kicks and giggles. I am short a decent example of the: 1986 Statue of Liberty, 1987 Constitution, and the 1990 Eisenhower. If you have any of these feel free to add them in.

There definitely is an advantage in collecting the BU verses the proof as any imperfection stands out drastically on the proof coins.

I too have a clad half that has never left it's mint holder and it has taken on an even gold toning over the entire surface. The cameo of the proof is non existent now but it looks like gold when you first see it.
