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.
Although not a San Francisco Mint product, the 1914-D is nonetheless a scarcer issue among the Indian Head half eagle series, with a skimpy mintage of 247,000 pieces. In 2006, gold pundits Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth noted that this issue 'is a scarcer date, and is frequently found well struck even on the feather tips and eagle's chest and wings. The surfaces are less granular and more lustrous than seen on many dates of this series. In terms of rarity, this date is available in most grades up to MS-64, but the populations fall off drastically at the gem MS-65 level, as seen on most dates. For this date and mint, a total of 20 coins have been graded as MS-65 ... . This places the issues (sic) just ahead of the 1914 Philadelphia issue in terms of rarity in gem, as the 14th scarcest.'
