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.
Aside from the celebrated 1894-S, the 1895-O Barber dime is the key issue--always coveted, always in demand, and seldom available--by the nation's Barber dime collectors, in grades ranging from Fair-2 to Premium Gem. Again aside from the 1894-S, there were precisely 13 Barber dime issues with mintages of less than 1 million coins each. For the most part, they form themselves into logical, if not always explainable, groups: the San Francisco issues of 1892, 1896, 1901, 1903 and 1904, 1913, and 1915, the New Orleans issues of 1894 through 1897, the Philadelphia issue of 1895, the sole P-mint, and the often-forgotten and overlooked 1909-D, the only D-mint issue with a mintage under 1 million. Of these, the 1895-O is the most desirable, for several important and interlinked reasons. It has the lowest mintage, at 440,000 pieces. It was early in the series, yet not so early that many specimens were kept as souvenirs of a new design. And it is possible that some low-grade specimens, possibly more than a few, were unrecognized for their rarity and melted in the great silver melts of the early 1980s. It is this cataloger's firm belief that Barber dimes are one of the most ignored and underrated areas of the current market.
