We hope that you’ll enjoy viewing pieces that have once held a prominent spot in the Greatest Collection of U.S. Coins ever assembled, and we invite you to also become a part of numismatic history by purchasing coins from the D.L. Hansen Collection!

All lots will begin closing at 8 pm EST on Sunday, December 15.

Our first highlight coin is an 1856 Flying Eagle 1c PCGS/CAC AU55 ex: D.L. Hansen. Golden-brown surfaces with well-defined design elements. Hints of luster still remaining with no mentionable detractions. The number one set holds an MS64 example for the date.

This week’s second highlight is an 1839 50c PCGS MS62 (No Drapery) ex: D.L. Hansen. Very scarce and desirable type coin with pretty bluish-gray tints and nice overall eye appeal. The Hansen Collection holds the MS65 examples that are tied for the finest graded.

The third highlight coin is an 1895-S $1 PCGS MS65 ex: D.L. Hansen. Frosty golden tints with plenty of luster and gorgeous reflective fields. The 1895-S is one of our favorite dates in the series as a sleeper issue that is surprisingly difficult to locate in AU and above. The number one Hansen set possesses another MS65 example.

Our final highlight is an 1875 $3 PCGS Proof 64 CAM ex: D.L. Hansen. Only 20 Struck! A true rarity in a series that is nearly impossible to collect. No circulation strikes of this date were produced, making it a Proof-only issue. Smooth orange-gold surfaces with a hint of rose, this piece is truly an underrated numismatic rarity for the advanced collector.
