Posted this in the Classic errors and varieties forum, but I want to see what you guys think it'll grade at. I'm thinking XF-40 to XF-45. Has 3 strong diamonds, and pretty strong feathers.

XF40/45 sounds right. Leaning slightly more towards XF45.

Thanks! I'm thinking 45 too, in hand it almost has a fourth feather but I think a small hit took it away.

The most important feature is the "thing" sticking out of the front of the neck.
That's a mis-punched "1".
If I read my Snow correctly, it's an S-1 variety.
Quite scarce.
That coin is definitely a STRONG candidate for authentication by PCGS or NGC.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

My first thought was XF as well. The reverse seems weakly struck?

Reverse seem well struck to me, but I'm no expert in any right. Thanks for all the responses!

I'll say EF-45, great example of this tough variety.

That much too pedestrian. I suggest to rename it the "Tracheostomy Variety".
