Here are a couple of quotes from John Smith's site:
"1940 Serial number 9N10276 - 9N46017
The last big change of the year (1940) was at serial number 9N45899 when a new steel grille with vertical bars was introduced to replace the fragile aluminum grill used since '39. Known as "the '41 grille" it was used only about one year and is different from later grilles which have additional slots in the center bar."
"1941 Serial number 9N46018 - 9N88933
The tractor was becoming very established and most changes now were minor engineering changes. The grease fittings were moved from the front side of the spindle to the rear side. The brake pedals were redesigned so that the right and left pedals were now different."
All this points to your tractor being a '41.
