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.
A fledgling community of numismatists in this country prompted the United States Mint in Philadelphia to commence issuing proof gold coinage on a limited basis in the years just prior to the Civil War. The number of proof Double Eagles recorded as being produced in 1859 (a mere 80 pieces) no doubt proved to too many, as only a handful of recognizable proofs survive today.
