Kennedy registry set owners

I just noticed this afternoon that the Kennedy registered sets have had a major set "Retired". The Whitlock Collection has been retired and this leaves me with both sadness :( and happiness :). My sadness is that this set might be broken up and placed into auctions. This set contained many, many of the top populations #1 of #'s. I hope that they have been donated to some type of museum. Many sets are now changing in their rankings. My happiness is that mine have increased in ranking ( one of mine going from a #5 to a #4 ) in "Current Finest Ranking". :)B)

Kennedys are my quest...

    It appear the Whitlock Collection was purchase by D. L. Hnasen. About 49 of the Whitlock coins have been updated in the Hansen Collection. It is now ATF set. I guess in some ways, it was not split up.

    Thanks for the update @Currin.

    Thanks to all for the updated information.
    I wonder if Hansen will now sell / auction off the coins not going into his set(s). I will keep a look out at Heritage and Great collections and of course Ebay. Maybe I can get an upgrade from this great set.
    @wondecoin you might find those 18 p and d coins in the ms67 grades you were looking for.

    I am not sure what he will do with duplicates. In many cases, he have 2nd sets. I don't remember him starting any duplicate sets for Kennedys. If he does, and places the coins in those sets, then they may not be available for awhile. Only time will tell.

    I would ask John at DLRC, since that is who has partnered with Hansen.

    I didn't see any of the higher ms grades that I need but will keep checking them out. Thanks.

    Guess I am stuck at about #7 or 8. Need to spend some big bucks to acquire coins good enough to move my ranking up. Would be nice if I could luck into something that would upgrade me.. Still looking..
