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 112,480-piece mintage of the 1873 eagle consists of both the Open and Closed 3 varieties, with the Closed 3 thought to be the rarer of the two. Jeff Garrett and Ron Guth (2006), in discussing the 1873 Closed 3, indicate that: 'In the last 15 years there have been relatively few examples sold, with the availability of this coin being skewed by the five coins in the sale of the Harry W. Bass Collection.' The rarity of the Closed 3 in the better grades of Mint State is undeniable
