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 beginning collector armed with only a copy of the Guide Book might be tempted to classify the 1885 as a rare coin. After all, federal records indicate that only 6,130 pieces were produced in both business strike and proof formats. What the Guide Book will not tell one is that many business strikes were preserved at the time of issue with the result that Mint State coins are probably more plentiful than circulated survivors in today's hobby. Gems, however, are seldom seen.
