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.
Walter Breen (1989) enumerates three examples, and Larry Briggs (1991) estimates the same number of survivors. David Akers (1998), on the other hand, lists five pieces known to him, conceding that one or two more coins may exist.
The following roster is derived from appearances known to us:
1. PR66 NGC. Phil Kaufman Collection (Heritage, 4/2008), lot 2390.
