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 Stock Market Crash of 1929 plunged the United States into the Great Depression. Following the financial holocaust, every coinage denomination except the hardy Lincoln cent sat out at least one year between 1929 and 1934. Although the silver dollar suffered the most, the Mint sidelined the half dollar for the duration of 1930, 1931, and 1932. Only in 1933 did half dollar coinage resume, and then only at the San Francisco Mint. Ironically, the 1,786,000 half dollars delivered that year turned out to include some of the best manufactured examples of Adolf Alexander Weinman's Walking Liberty since 1917.
