This first year issue of this design has been authenticated and graded as MS-61 by PCGS. This coin was originally designed as a high relief and looked more like a medal, but was lowered for a number of reasons namely because they did not stack well and because they had to be struck multiple times which wore out the dies quicker than normal.
Due to this fact, Saint-Gaudens had to redesign the coin. He lowered the relief so that these coins could be easily stacked and struck. 1907 Saints and some 1908 Saints do not bear the motto In God We Trust as it was not required by law to use this motto on coinage. President Roosevelt even defended Saint Gaudens' omission by stating that it was a profane use of God's name.
