1907-O is the poorest struck coin in the series. Some coins have "mumps," some with small depressions in the cheek (see 1904-O), others are simply distorted. The poorest strikes in the series belong to the 1904-O, 1906-O, 1907-O and 1909-O. Of these, the 1906-O and 1909-O come more softly struck as a rule, but not with the striking abnormalities of the 1907-O."

The finest Uncirculated examples graded by PCGS are 2 MS-67's.
