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

"1907-O is one of the poorest struck dates of the series. Nice hair detail over Liberty's forehead is almost never found. Likewise, the wreath on the reverse will also be soft in many details. Otherwise, the coin comes with very smooth creamy surfaces and nice luster. To date, 16 coins have been graded MS 65 and another 12 even higher."1

The finest Uncirculated examples graded by PCGS are 8 MS-66's.
