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 Trade dollar didn't catch on all that well overseas as had been hoped by Congress, and this design was retired from circulation after 1878 when the Morgan silver dollar coinage began in earnest. By 1879 only Proof Trade dollars were being struck for collectors, and the numbers and demand slowed until 1884 when official production apparently dwindled to a mere 10 coins, with another 5 struck during the late hours of the night in 1885.
