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 Classic Head design continued on quarter eagles through 1839, thus this 1840-C issue represents the first year of issue for the new Liberty Head design type. Only about seven or eight Mint State examples of this date are known, placing this in the important rarity category. Just two or three of these exist in MS63 grade, and they are tied for finest known.
