I need some grading help please!

This card came back from PSA a NM 7. I compared corners etc with a PSA 9 that I already had, and if anything the corners are a little bit nicer on the 7. I don't have much experience grading 1994 refractors, am I missing something obvious? The centering looks ok to me, I'm just puzzled and I don't want to try again if there's something I'm not seeing. Thanks in advance to anybody willing to share their wisdom! The lower right corner looked the worst to me so I included a high resolution scan of that corner. It looks fine to me from both front and back. I'm not questioning PSA, I don't know what I'm missing.

    Must be a surface dimple somewhere is my guess. That hurts!

    You definitely need to reach to our AI overlords. I'm sure they can explain. >:)

    Based on my recent returns I have no idea what anything means anymore.

    could be 2 small dots above e in FINEST?

    Has to be surface.
    Quite a few print dots in area of helmet, Finest, top border.
    What is the line/indent? across the forearm and sweatband?
    Are there micro-scratches seen when you tilt the card in the light?

    If he stuff on the top is on the card that would explain some of it. But the centering is great. 8.5 IMHO.

    Work hard and you will succeed!!

    Reason Number # 89 why I'll never why I'll never ever ever submit another Card to PSA.

    Thank for the thoughts! I'll just enjoy it as is, it's good enough for me! Doesn't really matter what number is on the slab.
