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 fourth Half Eagle struck at the Charlotte Mint, the 1841-C was produced to the extent of just 21,467 pieces. Surprisingly, this is one of the more common C-mint Half Eagles from the late 1830s and early 1840s, but it is still a significant rarity in Mint State. Winter ranks this date 17th in high grade rarity among C-mint Fives, with AU-Mint State examples being more rare than those of the 1847-C, 1849-C, 1850-C, 1852-C, 1853-C, 1857-C, and 1858-C deliveries. Just five or six coins are believed extant in Mint State (again, per Winter), the present example easily qualifies for Condition Census standing.
