The Survival Estimate represents an average of one or more experts' opinions as to how many examples survive of a particular coin in three categories: 1) all grades, 2) 60 or better, and 3) 65 or better. These estimates are based on a variety of sources, including population reports, auction appearances, and personal knowledge. Survival estimates include coins that are raw, certified by PCGS, and certified by other grading services.
Numismatic Rarity converts the Survival Estimate for a particular coin into a number from 1 to 10 (with decimal increments) based on the PCGS Rarity Scale. The higher the number, the more rare the coin.
Relative Rarity By Type
Relative Rarity By Type ranks the rarity of this coin with all other coins of this Type. Lower numbers indicate rarer coins.
Relative Rarity By Series
Relative Rarity By Series ranks the rarity of this coin with all other coins of this Series. Lower numbers indicate rarer coins.
David Akers (1975/88):
The 1907-S is a relatively common date, similar in overall rarity to the 1891-S, 1897-S and 1907-D and more rare than the 1899-S and 1900-S. However, except for the 1907-D, the 1907-S is not as rare as any of the aforementioned in Unc. In fact, in mint state the 1907-S is the third most common Liberty Head Double Eagle from the San Francisco Mint. (The 1904-S and 1898-S are the commonest.) A gem 1907-S Double Eagle is scarce but anything less than that is common.
