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 1852-O quarter, from a mintage of 96,000 pieces, is very scarce in all grades. Larry Briggs, in The Comprehensive Encyclopedia of United States Liberty Seated Quarters, 1991, assigns the following rarity ratings to the issue: G/VG-R.3+ (approximately 250 or more pieces known), F/VF-R.4 (approximately 76 to 250 pieces known), XF/AU-R.6 (approximately 13 to 30 pieces known), and Unc-R.7+ (approximately 4 or more pieces known).
The elusiveness of the 1852-O quarter in high grades is such that many collectors settle for worn, or even problem coins. The Eliasberg piece, for example, graded AU55 Scratched (Bowers and Merena, 4/1997, lot 1452), and the Pittman specimen XF Cleaned (David Akers, 5/1998, lot 1323
