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.
In 1917, a second issue of 10,000 McKinley Commemorative dollars was minted, of which only about 5,000 were subsequently sold. As in the case of the 1916, many of the remaining 1917s were sold to B Max Mehl, who subsequently sold them to collectors at a reduced price.
Very few circulated 1917 McKinley dollars are known, indicating that the public received very few pieces with this date. The coins were poorly publicized and distribution was considered unsatisfactory. The design was criticized at the time of issue and is still criticized in modern times. These factors combine to make the 1916-17 gold dollars one of the less memorable issues in the commemorative series of gold coins. As a footnote, the McKinley Birthplace Memorial was constructed in Niles, Ohio and today is still a popular visitor attraction.
