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.
Early in 1917, the United States Mint moved the mintmark on the Walking Liberty Half Dollar from the obverse below the motto IN GOD WE TRUST to the reverse near the rim at about 8 o'clock. Although more 1917-D Reverse Mintmark Half Dollars were produced than their similarly dated Obverse Mintmark counterparts, the former delivery is by far the more difficult to locate in the finer Mint State grades. In fact, Bruce Fox (The Complete Guide to Walking Liberty Half Dollars, 1993) asserts that the '17-D Reverse is more challenging to locate as a fully struck Gem than either the 1919-S or the 1921-D.
