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.
In only its third year of operation, the Carson City Mint managed a respectable--if still small--mintage of 16,980 half eagles in 1872. Most specimens of this denomination found a ready market in circulation in the rough-and-tumble West of the era, and today the average certified survivor grades only VF30 or thereabouts.
