The 100% complete set of 109 coins will also be joined by the near complete set of proof issues from 1838-1891. This set is the only complete set of circulation strike coins graded by PCGS that has ever been compiled. This will be the first time that this set is on full display.
The ANA World’s Fair of Money will be held in Rosemont, IL, from Tuesday, August 16th to Saturday, August 20th. DLRC will be attending and displaying this fascinating exhibit for the duration of the show at table 1030.
Some of the notable pieces that will be displayed are:
Per John Brush, President of DLRC and the Curator of the D.L. Hansen Collection «While quality and completion have long been the goals throughout the D.L. Hansen Collection, eye appeal is highlighted in this fascinating set and is evident throughout the wide swath of dates.»
According to Hansen, this set was «Painstakingly assembled piece by piece and was one of the harder collections to assemble due to the vast number of coins and the scarcity of some of the issues. Many late nights and several years of searching have resulted in this set and we couldn’t be prouder to share it with other collectors.»
This is just one of the many sets that has been put together by Hansen and it is a great example of the most complete collection of circulation strike coins ever assembled by a collector. It is the goal of DLRC and Mr. Hansen to not only continue to improve the collection but to share it with other collectors whenever possible.
About Dell Loy Hansen and DLRC
Dell Loy Hansen was born in Utah in the early 1950s and began collecting Whitman albums as a kid. Like many collectors, he took a break from coins to launch his career and start a family. In 1988, he founded the Wasatch Group, a real estate organization that manages a multi-million dollar portfolio. Hansen uses the PCGS Set Registry to organize and share his collection and he currently has over 1,200 complete registry sets. Over 40% of those coins are the finest known, either sole or tied, creating one of the highest quality sets of US coins in the world.
As Hansen built his collection, he made many purchases from DLRC and established a relationship with John Brush. When Brush had the opportunity to acquire DLRC, he and Hansen partnered to purchase the company. Today, Hansen assists with the business aspects of DLRC and Brush curates the Hansen collection and assists in the acquisition of new pieces.
