Recent appearances:
NGC MS-62.  Ex - Stack's "The University of Notre Dame Sale", March 20-21, 2001, Lot 347, not plated, sold for $368.00

Notes:
The 1907-S has come down in rarity from R5 [Rare] in the last edition, even though its ranking in total mint state has actually moved up one notch. This coin comes nice as a rule, accounting for the 18 coins certified MS 65 and above [as of 1999]. However, those looking to put together a certified AU set will have trouble - only two AU 55-58 currently exist."
