This one came up correctly attributed in the listing on ebay the other day. I got it at auction for $10 plus shipping which seemed really low given the quality RPM and condition of the coin.

Coin was photographed in a 2x2 so couldn't tell if the light scratch on the back was on the slip or on the coin, but obverse is MS-67 so was hoping reverse would be okay. Turns out scratch is on the coin. So won't be slabbing it but even with that minor scratch it's a solid coin and an upgrade for me.

1940-S/S/S Lincoln Wheat cent RPM-007 (east, east) Stage E (with new reverse)

That's a great upgrade! Though I think the obverse might not make 67RD on its own.

For those with experience in having coins graded, how much does a poor reverse take away from the overall grade assigned to the coin?

Thanks for the kind comments!

And just to be clear, the coin shows a minor scratch or two over by the right dot, but the ones I really note are the one that goes from the U of UNITED through the N of CENT and actually nearly to the right rim. A somewhat parallel one goes through EDST, and also down by the left wheat stem. Kinda looks like it was removed from a holder improperly and got some staple scratches. The rest of what is seen is just weak strike mint stuff and not damage.
