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.
Collectors who place considerable stock in the affect that original mintage figures have on the availability of coins in today's market might be tempted to describe the 1852-O (140,000 pieces produced) as one of the more common Liberty Quarter Eagles from the New Orleans Mint. After all, only the 1843-O Small Date, 1851-O, and 1854-O boast higher mintages. In this particularly case, however, those who are familiar with the economic climate of the United States in 1852 and its affect on the silver coinage of this date are in a much better position to pass judgment on the relative and absolute rarity of the '52-O Quarter Eagle. The vast majority of the coins produced seem to have been melted or otherwise lost and Winter (1992) opines that only 95-105 pieces are extant in all grades. Mint State survivors are of the utmost rarity.
