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.
Only two die marriages of 1798 Eagles are known. These share a common reverse, but since the obverse star arrangement significantly differs, both are separately collected Guide Book varieties. Breen 1-A crowds nine stars behind Liberty's cap and features LIBERTY and the final four stars after the cap. Breen 2-A takes a more balanced design approach, with seven stars behind LIBERTY and six afterwards. The large bust of Liberty is placed too high on Breen 1-A for such an arrangement, while the better centering of the bust on Breen 2-A allows room for the letters in LIBERTY above the cap. One of the most difficult dates to obtain in the Capped Bust Eagle series, just 900 examples of Breen 1-A were struck. The mintage of Breen 1-B is even more minute, with only 842 pieces struck. Although Breen 1-A is not as great a rarity as its 7x6 Stars counterpart, it is nonetheless coveted in all grades. Most survivors are in XF and AU grades.
