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 1909-S is a difficult San Francisco half eagle in any Uncirculated grade, even more scarce than its S-mint predecessor despite a mintage that is larger by over 200,000 pieces. The population of Choice Mint State or better specimens thins out even more dramatically and only rarely does a survivor at the MS64 grade level become available. Michael Fuljenz explains:
'The 1909-S is extremely hard to find in Uncirculated, especially in grades higher than MS62. It is rare in MS63, very rare in MS64 and extremely rare in MS65 or higher.'
