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.
This popular, high visibility date is another year that is represented by branch mint issues that are decidedly rare in Mint State. Even though more than 2.5 million half dollars were struck in the San Francisco mint in 1900, very few Uncirculated coins are known, especially in the better grades of Mint State. The primary reason for this issue's scarcity is because a substantial percentage of the mintage was shipped to the Philippines and circulated there. This fact is little known outside the circle of Barber specialists, and as a result the 1900-S has remained a very scarce and underrated issue in the series.
