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 the early 1880s, the various mints struck silver coinage largely in dollars, to the exclusion of potentially more useful minor silver denominations. Half dollars, in particular, saw mintages waste away, thriving multiple-mint production of the half dollar during the 1870s gave way to token production at Philadelphia only. No single issue of that decade had a mintage of over 12,001 pieces, and in 1883, the main Mint coined just 8,000 business strikes.
