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.
This is the most popular of the various Doubled Die Obverse issues known for the year, exhibiting a strong spread that is especially noticeable on the first few letters of LIBERTY and the last digits in the date, a variety that actually approaches the drama of the 1955 Doubled Die Obverse. For some reason, 1972 Doubled Die cents are usually found with abrasions and carbon spots.
