1907-O 10C AU58 Certification #27295901, PCGS #4844

Owner's Comments

The 1907-O is one of the poorest struck dates of the series. This example is certainly an exception with an abundance of hair detail over Liberty's forehead and a fully struck LIBERTY on the head band. The reverse details are equally well struck. A yellow/gold under toning covered with cobalt blue and rust. Professional imaging will be necessary to show the ture beauty of this one. Total PCGS AU population is 20 with 4 in AU 53 and 11 graded higher. The BCCS rating is R3.

Expert Comments

Ron Guth

The 1907-O Dime is just about equal in rarity to the 1907-S.  The 1907-O is not as rare as the 1907-D, but it is much scarcer than the 1907-P.  High grade examples are somewhat plentiful and can be found with relative ease in all grades up to Gem condition.  MS66 examples of the 1907-O Dime are almost as plentiful as MS65s, but in MS66+ and better, this date becomes exceedingly rare. 

In general, this date is well struck.  Collectors should focus on obtaining nice, problem-free examples that have colorful toning.
