Notes:
"1907-P is a common date up though MS 65, but like 1906-P, superb Gems are very rare. This coin comes with a typical P-mint appearance -- nice strike and luster, but not creamy surfaces which some of the O-mints have."

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


The finest Proof example graded by PCGS is a single PR-68.
