when is a rim bump a rim bump?

A few years ago I submitted this 1889 CC Morgan dollar to be graded, it came back as Fine Details Damage. The only damage I can see is the rim bump on the obverse at about 7:00. Is that really enough of a rim bump to get a damage grade, or am I missing some other "damage"?

    There is a lot of deep scratches and dents on both the obverse and reverse, which probably contributed to the details grade.

    There is also damage on the reverse rim between 12 and 1 o’clock which also
    probably contributed to the details grade.

    Seems like they got a little "picky" on that one. But who cares, it's a nicely circulated CC.
