New Buffalo coming my way. What is it?

Just purchased this beauty. It should be here in a day or two. It’s been graded but anyone want to guess what it is and what grade it received?

    1935-P double struck, MS details, obv. scratched.

    What a cool coin!
    Wild guess, I think the scratches limit the grade to a strong XF.
    (The white prongs look NGC.)

    Definitely double struck. Very nice. Maybe F or VF details-obverse scratches at lower right.

    Cheers, CRHer700 :mrgreen:

    More rare than a 3 legger, by far. But it is not recognized as a variety. Hard to believe that it is a mint error, but a unique mint error is seemingly unlikely. I would keep it, it for how long ????

    Coins like this just have to slow down the whole grading cycle.

    Double-struck, but not a flip-over.
    The second strike is rotated 90 degrees counter-clockwise from the first.
    You can see part of the first "1935" date on the feather near the rim between 9:00 and 10:00.

    Awesome rotated double struck buff. Nice pickup.

    WOW. Nice coin. In addition to the double strike the coin has also been clashed.

    What a neat coin!

    The 2024 Red Book (page 447) has it priced at $2400.00.
