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.
Breen-6001. This Open Wreath variant also has the L initial (for designer James Longacre) prominently punched on the truncation of the neck. The Breen reference calls this and the 6002 listing 'Small Head' varieties. Several years ago, John Dannreuther proved conclusively that the head is not actually smaller than on the so-called 'Large Head' varieties. Instead, Longacre moved the stars inward on a later hub modification, thus giving the optical illusion of a larger head on that hub and subsequent dies.
