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 is the first of three famous and scarce issues within the Walking Liberty series. The mintage of 208,000 coins is the second lowest of the entire run from 1916 to 1947. Bruce Fox commented extensively: 'Even experts have difficulty agreeing on its availability. It does have the second lowest mintage of the series and is obviously rare on this basis alone. At one time considered to be overrated as a condition rarity and an investment vehicle. Currently, it is the least expensive of the 1921 threesome and is normally selected for inclusion in a high-grade date-only set. Although I have seen many nicely struck and a few fully struck specimens, I have difficulty locating pieces having a near full strike with few enough abrasions to grade MS64 or higher.'
