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.
A Robert Ball Hughes modification of Christian Gobrecht's original design, the Drapery variety of the Seated Liberty Quarter made its debut in 1840 with a delivery of 188,127 pieces at the Philadelphia Mint and 43,000 coins at the New Orleans Mint. There are two known die marriages of the 1840-P, and Briggs describes the first of these (Briggs 1-A) as a transitional hub variety. Although most 1840 Drapery Quarters were produced from the Briggs 1-A die pairing, the variety is not at all common in Mint State. In fact, Briggs (1991) assigns this variety an R.6 rating in Unc.
