Notes:
"1907-D&O are both rated R2 [Common], but are very close to the cut off for R1 [Very Common]. With 180+ coins graded, both are available in most mint state grades though MS 67. However, they differ in appearance. The 1907-D comes with a decent strike and nice luster..."1

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