D.L. Hansen Collection Highlights


Featured Auction Lots

Our first highlight coin is a beautiful 1803 1/2c PCGS MS63 BN (C-3) ex: D.L. Hansen. Smooth dark chocolate surfaces display deep purple undertones and fantastic details for the grade. The primary set contains a MS64+ example for the date.

Our second highlight coin is a sharply struck 1867 50c PCGS MS65 ex: D.L. Hansen. A frosty luster is uninterrupted by rich lavender grey patina with occasional undertones of blue and gold. The Hansen Collection holds the finest known example for the date, a MS68.

A 1907-D 50c PCGS/CAC MS67 is our third highlight coin with gorgeous rose and gold obverse rim tints, converting to blue on the reverse. A gorgeous superb gem example of this popular type coin that becomes very difficult in high grades. In fact, only a pair of MS67+ examples are graded finer by PCGS. CAC approved for quality.

Our fourth highlight coin is an 1800 $1 PCGS AU58 (AMERCAI) ex: D.L. Hansen. Absolutely beautiful near mint state example. Deep blended tones of blue-green, peach, and violet glimmer over well-preserved surfaces. The strike is sharp throughout with no significant contact marks. The eye appeal is superb!
