DLRC is premiering a brand new weekly auction event, closing every Thursday evening, starting in February. The Red Carpet Rarities Auctions will feature a highly curated selection of no more than 100 coins each week, featuring important collections, registry-quality coins, key dates, and other meaningful numismatic items. These exclusive auction events will begin closing on Thursday, February 22nd. Subsequent auctions will close weekly on Thursdays.
The initial four Red Carpet Rarities Auctions will showcase the Helen’s Quarter Collection, a complete run of U.S. Quarters from 1796-1964. Per John Brush, President of DLRC, this collection was started in the late 1990s by filling holes in a Whitman album from a jar of old silver quarters given to the collector by his mother-in-law, Helen. As the collector matured and the collection’s quality improved, he started traveling to most major shows to continue completing and improving upon the collection. “I was privileged to work with the collector for many years, and while I’m sad that we won’t be pursuing more pieces for him, we are honored to work with him in the sale of this collection,” stated Brush. As he’s ready to enter semi-retirement, the collector has reached a point where it’s far more difficult to upgrade pieces in the collection and has decided to auction his coins through DLRC’s new Red Carpet Rarities Auctions. Selections from the initial sale of this grand collection will close Thursday, February 22nd and the following three parts will close on subsequent Thursdays.
Collection Highlights include the following examples:
This incredible collection provides a strong starting point for DLRC’s Red Carpet Rarities Auctions. The first auction is live now and closes on Thursday, February 22nd. Bid now at www.dlrccoins.com.
DLRC, formerly David Lawrence Rare Coins, was founded in a spare bedroom in 1979 by David Lawrence Feigenbaum. A passionate collector his entire life, Feigenbaum made the jump to dealing when his collecting desires surpassed his limited professor’s budget. After David passed away from a long battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), his son John Feigenbaum took the reins and oversaw the company’s growth until 2015. That August, Feigenbaum became the Publisher of CDN Publishing and passed operations to John Brush. Mr. Brush, with prominent collector Dell Loy Hansen, purchased the company shortly thereafter and continued the legacy of the collector-friendly numismatic outlet.
Mr. Brush directs the company with the help of an extremely dedicated staff of 20 employees. The management team cumulatively totals over 80 years with the company, while DLRC’s numismatic team offers 100+ collective years of experience and passion for all aspects of coin collecting. Whether the coin is $5, $50, or $5 million, they are here to serve the collector with the best quality, service, and price possible.
DLRC has handled many legendary rarities of United States numismatics including the finest certified 1796 No Pole Liberty Cap half cent, two examples of the 1894-S Barber dime, a gem 1876-CC 20-cent piece, the finest known 1901-S Barber quarter, three of the 12 known 1870-S Seated dollars, both examples of the famous 1854-S $5 gold half eagle, the historic 1815 $5 gold half eagle, one of the two known 1825/4 $5 gold half eagles, and the Mickley-Hawn-Queller 1804 Proof Draped Bust dollar. The company also helped with the assembly and sale of the $25 million Richmond Collection at three public auctions hosted in New York City and Baltimore, and is the curator of the All-Time Greatest Collection of U.S. Coins: The D.L. Hansen Collection.
