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.
The 1880s were an unusual decade, and 1887 was an unusual year for the U.S. Mint. The facility struck enormous numbers of Indian Head cents, Liberty nickels, and Morgan dollars, but most gold denominations saw tiny emissions of business strikes, or even proof-only productions in the case of the P-mint double eagle and half eagle. Only 6,160 circulation strikes of the 1887 quarter eagle were manufactured, but that level the production is the highest since 1879.
