Duke on eBay. One of a few picked up from the on-line auction site, eBay. This coin was in an old first generation "rattler" holder when we found it. We really like the look of this coin. The coin manifests beautiful reddish swirling toning, with original and clean surfaces. The 1907-D comes nice and is common in all conditions, especially circulated condition, but is available in MS 65 and above more than most issues in the entire Barber Half series. There are some well-known examples of this issue that are very pretty and are graded MS 66 and better. Although the number of gem and better 1907-D halves is high for Barber Halves, the population figures are tiny compared to many other series. The 1907-D is a reasonable selection for a mint state type coin of the series if one wants a coin other than the 1892 or 1915-D, the two most common mint state coins in the series.
