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.
Jeff Garrett: The 1930–S Double Eagle is a major rarity in any grade. The original mintage was much lower than others of the era, and most of these were destroyed. There are probably less than 100 survivors of the date. Those that did survive were likely held by American coin collectors or dealers and it is almost certain that none were shipped overseas from this Western mint. Nearly all are in Mint State condition. I have seen a few damaged or polished examples. For many years the 1930–S, 1931, 1931–D and 1932 Double Eagles traded for around $40,000 in Choice condition. In the last decade or so, interest in the Saint–Gaudens series has surged, and the purchase of any of these dates now requires a six figure investment in most cases. The Smithsonian collection contains three examples of this rare issue. One of the coins would probably grade MS 68 and is one of the finest examples of any date Saint–Gaudens Double Eagle I have seen. The coin is truly a miracle of survival!
