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.
Jeff Garrett: This issue starts the beginning of the rare, late date Saints–Gaudens Double Eagles. It is the most obtainable of the group from 1929 to 1932, but is still very rare and seldom available. The American stock market crashed in 1929 and the world economies sank into depression. Very few of this date were sent to Europe and many of the survivors seen are the result of some small hoards that surfaced over the years. A small hoard of 40 coins was discovered in 1984 in England and I personally purchased a small group of 10 coins in the early 1990s. With banks failing at alarming rates, it should be no surprise that many individuals squirreled away some hard assets. Today, just a few hundred are estimated to have survived the great gold melts of the 1930s. Most seen are MS 62 to MS 64. Gems are very rare.
