    quite a joy to watch; thanks for posting it!

    really enjoyed hearing from other members of the team as well as hansen that help to build, expand, improve, sell dups and more. appreciated some of the lingo they used and the mentioning of this forum as well as currin's efforts which are notable.

    VERY VERY much appreciate it being public in the registry for a myriad of reasons.

    something that jumps out at me and i presume is not easily achievable except for the just right lighting, angles and camera is how when going over the proof coins, you can see luster bands on many of them.

    Great story. Not to take away anything from Hansen, how much more leg work did Eliasberg have to do to put together his collection before the internet age?

    The longer I live the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice is it possible for an empire to rise without His aid? Benjamin Franklin

    A significant portion of The Eliasberg Collection was the en bloc purchase of The Clapp Collection.

    Agree. It would be great for all these coins to be provenanced to “Clapp-Eliasberg”.

    The funds required to chase a set like this is absolutely mind numbing. I'd say he's done fairly well in real estate!

    I agree this is an amazing video. I had the pleasure of being invited into the DLH Collection vault. That was maybe three years ago. It was amazing to see the coins at the time, and has only got better since. Most people don’t know, but there is a 85% complete 3700 piece secondary set in the collection. He speaks of his second set in the video. He does not sell coins from the first two sets.

    Yesterday, he posted the purchase of 16 early US Half Dollars from the Dr. Charles Link Collection. Only 16 coins, but if you a half dollar fan, you will be amazed by these coins. I started a series discussing this purchase on Hansen watch. If you have not be keeping up on the updates, the video does a great job of being you up to speed. If you would like to see what’s new in this collection, just start on page 86. See you there.

    Am curious about what he thinks of CAC since most of what was shown in the collection are stickerless.

    I mean when you're buying the finest known, CAC kind of loses it's value. The quality of the coin when compared to others is where CAC holds a lot of value, but when you know it's the best out there, there's not as much need. That's how I see it anyways.

    Edit: I thought someone might mention that his collection is not all finest known. I'm aware, but the spirit of the post is that he may have less need for CAC than the rest of us.

    ok. watched most of it again and it is impressive how much time the video gives to Hansen's predecessors. that says a lot.

    anyone with a note pad (or better recall than me) should be able to garner MUCH material for numismatic research and enjoyment. like with the archives here, i scarcely know where to start!

    Most of what is shown is in a new holder with the special Hansen label. Some of them are cac approved but have not been sent to cac for a re-sticker. The video briefly showed some sets that he had purchased. The perfection trade dollars were in the holder with the Hansen label and no cac. I believe all of the perfection coins were cac approved. Don't know what he thinks of cac but can't go by what is seen with the new Hansen label holders.

    as a side-note, has anyone noticed a "beefier" slab for ultra-value/ultra-raritiy coins? it seems like somewhere in the vid i was cringing inside thinking of anyone of those slabs hitting the floor and breaking like glass BUT somewhere in the vid, it seems like while a slab is being handled/rotated, it looked like a heavy-duty version, which to me, would only make sense. surely this is the case? i'm not talking about the oversized.

    if you have the desire, there are a few? threads about this and MAYBE even a video or two probably/possibly linked.

    some of the commentary may be spirited.

    While D.L. Hansen is not nuts about CAC, he partakes in MANY of the all CAC Composite Registry sets, and while not always ranked at the top, many of his all CAC Registry sets have a high percentage of CAC coins, with only a few holes!

    …..(D.L. Hansen) does not sell coins from the first two sets.

    As he acquires a new coin then for his first set, is it fair to assume that the coin being replaced is then used for the “second set”, and if so, is the coin then being replaced from the second set then typically sold by DLRC with the Hansen label on the slab?
