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 dime, quarter, and half dollar designs by Chief Engraver Charles E. Barber made their debut in 1892 with production at all three operating mints. The obverse of these coins depicts a representation of Liberty not unlike that used on the Morgan dollar of 1878-1921, except that the portrait faces right instead of left. Thirteen stars are arranged around the periphery with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST at the upper rim and the date at the bottom. The reverse of the quarter and half dollar shows Barber's interpretation of the Great Seal of the United States, with the usual statutory inscriptions around the rim. The dime's reverse was that used on the Seated dime from 1860 through 1891.
The first reverse hub prepared for the quarter in 1892, known as the Type One reverse, shows the eagle's left (facing) wingtip covering only a small portion of the E in UNITED. For unknown reasons, but apparently early in the production run, this hub was replaced by the Type Two reverse that shows the eagle's left (facing) wingtip covering most of the E in UNITED. Business strikes and proofs with the Type One reverse are considerably scarcer than their Type Two counterparts.
