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.
With a mintage of 82,000 pieces, the 1857-S Seated Liberty quarter is scarce in all grades. AU coins are quite difficult but can occasionally be found with patience. Mint State pieces, on the other hand, are quite rare. Seated quarter expert Larry Briggs rates the issue a High R.6 in Mint State. Indeed, our records indicate that only 21 Mint State examples have been for sale by the major auction houses in the past 18 or so years, a figure that likely includes numerous duplicate appearances of some coins (3/08).
