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 mintage that is generally quoted for the Small Letters 1843-O is 19,075 pieces. Breen's comment about this issue from his 1988 Encyclopedia remains true today: 'Very rare in EF, Ex. rare above. A few 'seawater Uncs,' prohibitively rare full Unc.'
Astute collectors have begun to appreciate the absolute as well as the conditional scarcity of New Orleans gold. For some reason, these issues have not received the notoriety or the press of Charlotte and Dahlonega gold, with the exception of several very rare O-mint double eagles.
