1860 1C PCGS/CAC PR66 – One of the offerings from the D.L. Hansen Collection

DLRC and Dell Loy Hansen are excited to announce the sale of coins from the D.L. Hansen Collection. Partnering with DLRC’s new Red Carpet Rarities Auction Series, the upcoming sales of duplicates from the primary collection will be featured in a series of upcoming auction events starting in March, with the first auction scheduled to end on March 28th.

The Red Carpet Rarities Auction Series is specially designed and hand-curated to feature a selection of no more than 100 coins each week, featuring important collections, registry-quality coins, key dates, and other meaningful numismatic items. These exclusive auction events, closing on Thursday nights, began in January 2024 and will be continuing on a weekly basis.

The D.L. Hansen Collection, the first and only privately held collection of regular issue US coins from 1792 to Present, has been described as the Greatest Privately Held Collection of US Coins ever assembled! According to Hansen, "This was just an absolute passion of mind to complete something that others said was impossible! As I continued to acquire pieces for this goal, I also would upgrade existing coins along the way. As a result, I not only built a high-quality collection, I also ended up with many duplicates. Now that I’ve completed a large part of my collection, I wanted to re-introduce many of these coins to other collectors who have become my friends. As a result, I’ve chosen to partner with DLRC to auction off many duplicate coins this year!"

According to DLRC President John Brush, "Working with Mr. Hansen has been the highlight of my career. While helping to piece this collection together we balanced Mr. Hansen’s desire for completion with the desire for quality. As a result, we did end up with quite a few pieces that were once part of the primary collection but have since been upgraded. Now we’re excited to continue to work with my friend and partner in 2024 as we launch the new auction series and help other collectors build their collections."

Mr. Hansen continues, "While I’m excited to share these coins once again with other collectors, my lifelong calling has also been to help others. I’m excited to use the proceeds of these coins to support numerous charities in the state of Utah and around the world. As a result, the proceeds will be going towards the Hansen Family Foundation and I’m excited to carry on the great hobby of numismatics while also helping those that are less fortunate."

The offerings from the D.L. Hansen Collection start this week, exclusively at www.dlrccoins.com.

About DLRC

DLRC, formerly David Lawrence Rare Coins, was founded in a spare bedroom in 1979 by David Lawrence Feigenbaum. A passionate collector his entire life, Feigenbaum made the jump to dealing when his collecting desires surpassed his limited professor’s budget. After David passed away from a long battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), his son John Feigenbaum took the reins and oversaw the company’s growth until 2015. That August, Feigenbaum became the Publisher of CDN Publishing and passed operations to John Brush. Mr. Brush, with prominent collector Dell Loy Hansen, purchased the company shortly thereafter and continued the legacy of the collector-friendly numismatic outlet.

Mr. Brush directs the company with the help of an extremely dedicated staff of 20 employees. The management team cumulatively totals over 80 years with the company, while DLRC’s numismatic team offers 100+ collective years of experience and passion for all aspects of coin collecting. Whether the coin is $5, $50, or $5 million, they are here to serve the collector with the best quality, service, and price possible.

David Lawrence Rare Coins, now DLRC, is one of my preferred dealers. Always the right coins in the right grades. Their buyer has a good eye.
