Comparison between 1907 curve (usually looks like a double-punched date, probably due to a corrected or re-used die) and straight (clean hit with 7 as two lines in perfect angle) variants:

Although minted from dies provided by the Mexico Mint, with the Mo mintmark, there were 5,434,699 coins minted in 1907 in the New Orleans Mint.  This is the only coin minted in the New Orleans Mint for a foreign government.
