Updated Response to the Feb 03 query.
Per FBI EFTS 7.0 governing NCIC Fingerprint Codes:
Code XX is used for bandaged fingers. Throughout EFTS 7.0, bandaged fingers are treated like amputated fingers. A more detailed explanation of Henry to NCIC conversion is online here.
Years ago, AC was used as the NCIC Fingerprint Code representing "approximate classification" and UC was used to represent "Unclassifiable." Although the AC and UC codes still exist in some old, legacy files, XX would now be used.
Code XX is used in instances of missing and totally/partly amputated fingers where conditions make it impossible to accurately classify. Do NOT assign the opposite finger classification as is done in the Henry system of classification.
Code SR is used in instances in which the fingerprint cannot be accurately classified because of scarring or mutilation. Do NOT assign the opposite finger classification as is done in the Henry system of classification.

I have a ten print card, of which the NCIC class. is needed for entry into our system in reference to a warrant. One of the fingers is bandaged. It is the only fingerprint card that I have that shows this finger. What would the letters that would be in-putted into the classification? I checked the FBI book and it just has letters for an amputated, missing, or scarred print. It is not known if the finger has been permanently scarred or not.
