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.
For those collectors who prefer a mintmarked example for their type sets the 1855-O gold dollar is the obvious choice, as the most available Type Two issue from a branch mint. The issue is also popular as the only Type Two O-mint dollar, and because it is the final gold dollar produced at the New Orleans Mint.
But with a mintage of 55,000 business strikes, examples are hardly common. Even when certified examples are encountered in the marketplace, the average grade is apt to be only Choice XF or AU. In Mint State the certified population at NGC and PCGS thins noticeably from the dozens of AU examples.
