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.
While the 1843-C Large Date is a fairly common coin in the lower circulated grades, Winter writes concerning the issue: 'In grades above Extremely Fine-45 it is very underrated and almost as rare as the more heralded 1843-C Small Date. The 1843-C Large Date is very rare in the higher About Uncirculated grades and it is excessively rare in full Mint State.'
Those are bold statements indeed, especially considering that the 1843-C Small Date is the rarest C-mint quarter eagle. In 1998 when Gold Coins of the Charlotte Mint 1838-1861 debuted, Winter estimated that only six or seven pieces existed in Mint State--but even with duplications, that seems on the low side. It almost appears as though a small hoard of survivors, or possibly shipwreck recoveries, has been quietly sold off in the intervening decade.
