"There were over 34 million dimes produced this year, the vast majority came from the Philadelphia Mint."

"1907-D has a scarcity that defies easy explanation. Rumor has it that a large shipment of these dimes (and quarters) met disaster when a delivery wagon toppled in the Black Canyon near Gunnison Colorado. This date not only is an R5 in mint state, but also is fairly tough in all circulated grades."1

The finest Uncirculated example graded by PCGS is a single MS-67.
