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.
Like the 1896-O (an issue that is also well represented in this sale), the 1897-O is known for poor striking definition, dull luster, and, as a result, limited eye appeal. On the other hand, most of the Prooflike and Deep Mirror Prooflike coins extant display an exactness of strike that is a radical departure from the norm for the issue.
