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 1882 three dollar gold is one of those fantastically low-mintage dates from late in the series, an issue definitely apt to rev the engine of a dedicated collector. With such a low mintage, many of the business strikes are prooflike and could easily be confused in high grades with true proofs, except for one key characteristic: The business strikes show a repunched 2 in the date, 'with a crescent-shaped vestige of an earlier 2 above the final date,' according to the Bowers series reference.
