I posted this on guess the grade but now that I have the coin what I was hoping wasnt a issue does look to be a rim hit.
Opinions on if this would detail a otherwise nice coin?
Was going to send to PCGS with others
I posted on the grade post but they tend to not get looked at after a few days
and trying to decide if I should return it.
It folks think it will straight grade still I will submit it. If thoughts are it will detail its going back, I personally think its 50/50

Coin looks nicer in hand than the pics but the hit at 9-10 is there for sure.

I'll say this straight-grades at MS-63.

It's a beauty! I would say straight grade 64 with that eye appeal.

I personally don't see it as problematic. I vote straight grade.

The rim hit is tiny and should not cause a "details" grade. The obverse fingerprints are more noticeable and might limit the grade to MS-63. Decent eye appeal overall.

I think this has a chance at MS-64, but I will go conservative with MS-63. The rim dings shouldn't be a problem.

If it were mine - my eyes would always be drawn to the rim issue. I may be outvoted but I think it might get an MS details grade.

The rim hit doesn't look any worse than a deep bag mark, so I'd think it would straight grade.

My fear is it looks potentially filled though it's not rough I guess it could be a edge hit

It's a small area but here it is magnified . Does this look filled? To me it looks like something with groves hit it.

That last shot you posted makes it look like a lamination error that detached.

Edit: coming back to this I'm almost positive this is a lamination peel. The surfaces are inconsistent and not straight. There is a wavy wood grain like appearance, similar to split wood. If this were damage I would expect to see a relatively even surface, especially given how small the area in question is. Also, it's goes not appear to have any displaced metal, no shiny raised areas throughout the area in question. Also notice the "cracks" notated with arrows. This look like an additional laminate that wasn't removed. Picture pulling apart layers of string cheese, similar appearance and concept, but better tasting than Morgan dollars.
