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

"For a coin that comes nice, the 1907-S has very few gems graded (only eight MS 65 and seven better). Perhaps it's because this coin is not as sharply struck as its earlier S-mint counterparts. Still, 1907-S is a fairly scarce date in mint state and nice specimens should not be passed up."1

The finest Uncirculated examples graded by PCGS are 3 MS-66's.
