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 Small Eagle reverse was retired in 1797, in favor of the Heraldic Eagle motif. Examples of both types were struck during the year, with one variety representing the old Small Eagle type, and three varieties of the Heraldic eagle design. The present coin is easily identified as the BD-1 die marriage, the lone variety with the Small Eagle reverse. The reported mintage for the Small Eagle type was 3,615 pieces, but die evidence indicates some of these coins may have been dated 1796. John Dannreuther estimates the original mintage may have been as low as 1,250 pieces, with 55-65 examples surviving today.
