Recent appearances:

"As we enter the last eight years of the series, we see that strikes will be fairly poor for the P, D&O (as long as New Orleans continues to operate) Mints and decent for the S-mint issues.

1907-D is fairly tough for a coin with almost 2.5 million mintage (was R4 [Very Scarce] in the last edition). Above MS 65 it has proven to be extremely scarce - only two coins certified [as of 1999] and they are both MS 66. Its scarcity is due in large part to the legend that a large shipment of the 1907-D quarters (and dimes) met disaster when a delivery wagon toppled in the Black Canyon near Gunnison Colorado."1

The finest Uncirculated examples graded by PCGS are 3 MS-66's.
