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 his new reference, Early United States Quarters 1796 - 1838, Steve Tompkins provided more in depth information about the 1823/2 Capped Bust quarter than any other author has even thought possible. He began: 'The 1823/2 Bust Quarter is one of the great rarities of the early Federal coinage series. Historically and specific to the quarter denomination, the 1796 and 1827/3/2 dates have enjoyed center stage in the rarity spotlight. While carrying comparable credentials, the 1823/2 date has languished off-stage in the shadows. In spite of much speculation over the years, the true rarity of the 1823/2 Bust Quarter has been un-promoted and under appreciated.' Tompkins continued to provide a pedigree roster of 31 known examples, including a single proof, and others that grade from MS61 down to Fair 2.
