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.
It was David Akers who alerted gold collectors some 25 years ago to the rarity of 1895-S Half Eagles. At that time he wrote, 'The 'common date' status of the 1895-S in the standard pricing guides is erroneous...Most known specimens are well worn with VF to EF being typical. AU examples are very rare and strictly uncirculated ones are extremely rare.' The intervening years have only confirmed that statement.
