I say it might be XF-40.

XF45, shield and stars are well defined, looks MAD strike on Motto or off pressure, didn't fill in well. Love the massive spidey cracks, normal for the SN's Mox's eye appeal 5/10, not "crazy" about the obverse strike.

I believe it's XF-45 or maybe even better, you can see the lines in the stars on the reverse, and all the lines in the shield on the obverse are visible. That's a really amazing find!

EF-45, obverse issues at K7 diminish eye appeal.

AU-55. Suggest new thread, piggybacking confuses people.

Why start the discussion over with different pics without saying these are different pics of the same coin?

That's how I always do it. I post the seller's pictures when I make a purchase and then I post the in-hand pictures when the coin arrives. Must have done it this way over 100 times now.

Your latest photos don't show much luster. What does it really look like?
