Can a cud error occur on any Morgan Dollar?

Is this a random error that can occur and foes this look like one?

    It looks like a hit/damage. Not an error.

    I see slight damage, nothing resembling a cud.

    I was curious about that. So this coin is something that occurred after it was minted?
    Therefore it will affect the grade. Correct?
    I respect your experience and knowledge. I know my eye is not as keen as yours but after looking at the Morgan on that link which I appreciate you sending Mark, it looks similar.
    Is it also possible that it looks this way because of the angle of the image?
    I have no problem considering damage. Just scratching my head about it.

    The image of the Morgan you posted certainly appears to have a very mild rim ding. It would have happened after it was minted and would be considered damage, but it is so mild that I don't think it would hurt the chances of the coin being certified as problem-free.

    That is PMD...but minor... and as @TomB mentioned, the coin very well may straight grade. Cheers, RickO
