David Akers (1975/88):

This is the final year of this type and although not particularly scarce as a date, choice uncirculated specimens are difficult to obtain. Almost every specimen I have seen was softly struck in the centers and a well struck 1807 is a rarity.

Ron Guth:

The 1807 Half Eagle of the Turban Head style (Bust Right) is a common coin as far as early gold goes, though it is less common than some of the other dates of the type (such as 1803 and 1806) . Even Mint State examples are plentiful, with quite a few available in MS62 and MS63. The finest example is a single PCGS MS65+ from Stack's section of Auction '79.

Akers wrote "Almost every specimen I have seen was softly struck in the centers" but most of the examples we've encountered are fairly well struck, at least no less so than other dates. It is true that a fully struck 1807 Bust Right $5 would be very rare, but that is true of the other dates, as well.
