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.
Despite an original delivery of only 12,000 coins, this O-mint half eagle saw extensive circulation in the years preceding the outbreak of the Civil War. In his book on New Orleans gold coinage, Douglas Winter asserts that the 1847-O is the rarest half eagle to emerge from the Louisiana branch mint. When an example does appear in the numismatic marketplace, it is apt to grade no higher than the median circulated grade tiers.
