The reason why reverse pics were requested is because often times rare coins can be matched to markers from die pairs. That means that the reverse can play a big role in determining a rarity. However, I know of no 1859-dated FECs. What you "see" on the coin is very much up to interpretation. The better route is trying to find what is known. As such, this coin is just damaged, sorry.
