    There were upgrades and additions made in several sets. Although, I did not see anything that stood out this week. Anyone have anything to add, please feel free.

    I started this post for members that would like to follow his progress. I know it is not for everyone. The title of this topic speaks for itself. If you don’t have interest, that’s OK.

    So how many does he still need?

    I like cheering on other board members in their pursuit of coins. I don't care at what level, either - if an MS62 PL Morgan is an upgrade to their set, or a PF67 piece of old Gold. Now, tracking 3rd parties' progress, while interesting, seems mildly creepy to me, but that's not really important if it's someone else's cup of meat.

    P.S. I opened this thread, like I open most threads, out of curiousity - I didn't immediately understand the reference.

    He is updating all sets. I believe he is more focused on U.S. Coins Complete Basic Set, Circulation Strikes (1792-1964). This is my opinion base on updating habits. He needs 31 to complete the registery set. I believe to actual complete the circulation strikes, he need 35 due to the registery set does not list the 4 unique CS coins.

    I admit it. I'm a contrarian. I have no interest what so ever about what Mr. Hansen is up too. Money talks. People scramble for it. It's as old as time itself. Big deal. I wish him luck. I just don't care a wit about him, his coins, or his bucks.

    I could excuse that comment coming from a non-collector. But from another collector, I consider it an obnoxious display of jealousy.

    Yeah I am one of those that does not mind viewing what others collect, no matter who they are or what they have...This site has really changed in the past 5 years........

    Thanks for sharing.......Enjoy Tom

    How has the site changed over the past five years? And I think it's great Hansen is on this pursuit and I enjoy hearing about his progress. Thanks for the OP.

    Why would someone who doesn't "care a whit about him, his coins, or his bucks" even open a thread here headed Hansen Watch ? ! ?

    I wasn't thinking clearly at the time. I'm all better now.

    I always believed that if someone has to tell everyone they do not care about something, then they really do. Otherwise, they would have not said a thing.

    I don't need to look up contrarian. I'm not ignorant. What I do need to know is who the lady in your sigline is ! ! ! LOL

    1947-P & D; 1948-D; 1949-P & S; 1950-D & S; and 1952-S.

    I thought I was going to see a new brand of a wrist or pocket watch when I saw the thread title.

    Nice rare old gold you don't see everyday though.

    The leading zero suggests that has its origins in an old green or rattler holder.

    Very remarkable specimens.

    This is interesting additional information that I cut and pasted from CoinFacts:

    David Akers (1975/88): Proofs are known and are extremely rare. One specimen is in the Smithsonian Institution, another in the ANS Collection, a third in the John Hopkins University Collection (PCGS CoinFacts editor note: the Garrett collection) and a fourth is owned by John J. Pittman who purchased it from the Melish Sale in 1956.

    The fourth specimen is the addition to the Hansen Collection.

    The newest addition to the collection is a really nice old gold proof. 1854 Type 2 G$1 proof. This issue has a low survival est. of only 4 coins. The PGGS pop is 1/0, and this the only coin with a DC grade. PCGS does not list a price for this coin.

    https://images.pcgs.com/TrueView/06648642_Large.jpg

    I saw this coin at Pittman and my notes are "64DC- never thunk (I'd see something like this)"
    What's the assigned numerical grade, and with or without?

    One of latest addition to the collection is a really nice old gold overdate, 1828/7 half eagle (BD-1). I think this is rarity with pop 2/0. The coin is the CAC - Eliasberg/ Pogue Specimen. PCGS price this coin at $325,000. Is this the specimen called "proof" in the famous Louis Eliasberg Collection?

    https://images.pcgs.com/TrueView/81339439_Large.jpg

    @Currin it is also ex: Clapp. It was called "Choice AU-55 obverse; Brilliant Uncirculated, MS-60 reverse" in the Eliasberg catalog (1982), but B&R further noted that both Akers and Breen had earlier called it a Proof.

    It brought $44,000 with 10% juice back when the 1822 half eagle last traded hands for a record-setting (and still memorable) $687,500.

    This is one great looking old gold coin. You don’t see many MS69 from this era. I can not find a predigree or history on this coin. Do anyone know the history?

    It does not appear to have been purchased in an auction. Where does he find these great specimens?

    I’m waiting to hear of the private sale of the Pogue 1822 and 1854-S $5’s to Hansen. He must be trying for buy them, no?

    I was browsing the update page. Hansen has 213 sets with recent upgrades. He has 777 sets listed. I find it a pain just keeping a handful of sets up to date. What kind of effort does it take to keep his collection updated?

    Whenever you add a coin to your inventory you have the option to update all existing sets where it will upgrade.
