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 half dollars of 1814 were produced in relatively large number for the time, some 1.04 million pieces. Those coins were produced using only eight obverse and nine reverse dies, combining to make nine known die marriages for the year. The dies were obviously pushed to the limits, and several varieties of 1814 are well-known for die clashes, breaks, die erosion, and the other ailments that overstressed dies can produce. The Overton reference notes that 'the year 1814 produced some of the most severely clashed dies of the entire [Bust half] series.'
The O-103 and O-108a varieties of the 1814 are the only two rated as R.1 or common, although others rank R.2, and only the O-106 is rare.
