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 Brian Greer Complete Guide to Liberty Seated Dimes says of this issue that it is the 'unquestioned key to the series (excluding the uncollectible 1873-CC No Arrows). Rare in any grade, and probably a full R.6 [very rare] in problem-free condition. Very few mint state pieces exist. Under intense demand and currently bringing well in excess of Trends prices, when available.'
Of course, the 1874-CC needs no introduction to the legions of Liberty Seated dime specialists eager to obtain an example. The mintage is recorded as 10,817 pieces, according to Greer all from a single die pair. The obverse arrows slant noticeably upward. The www.seateddimevarieties.com website comments, '1874-CC dimes are rare in all grades and are almost always encountered with surface problems. Extremely rare in Mint State. Always under strong collector demand with problem free examples bringing in excess of trend sheet prices.?
