The NGC Universal ID is a four digit alphanumeric that groups coins based on a unique combination of date, mintmark, denomination and striking process (MS, PF, or SP). These IDs are a simple organization of all coins prior to variety attribution and grading.
The San Francisco Mint delivered just 1.3 million Barber Dimes in 1897, virtually all of which entered circulation and remained there for many years. Like virtually all early branch mint issues in this series, the '97-S is difficult to locate in circulated grades above the Good level and undeniably rare in Mint State. David Lawrence (1991) opines that the high grade rarity of this date is underrated by most collectors.
