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.
Only one known die pair exists for the 1800 eagles. Although considered a common issue overall, this issue is seldom encountered in higher Mint State grades. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth explain the importance of this date in their Gold Encyclopedia: 'The 1800 issue is relatively easy to obtain in most circulated grades, thanks to a cluster of coins at the About Uncirculated level. Mint State examples are truly rare and the unusually high number of MS-63 examples reported is likely bloated by resubmissions.'
Akers considers the date underrated, and cites the calendar year mintage of 5,999 coins to support his statement. However, it is probably the case that certain eagles struck in 1801 were dated 1800, as the custom of the Mint was to use dies until they wore out.
