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.
Business strike production of the 1871 quarter eagle amounted to just 5,320 pieces, a tiny figure, yet one in line with the low overall mintages of the smaller gold denominations in the post-Civil War era. The smaller coins were less useful in international trade than larger denominations such as the double eagle, and so gold dollars, quarter eagles, and half eagles were decidedly out-of-favor.
