What did I miss on this? (2)

I didn't see the stain on the back, which may be residue of having been in an album. Is that enough for a 2, or is there something I (still) am missing?

    What’s that indent on the lower stain?

    I'm not familiar with stamp standards, but did the chipping on the top and bottom edge factor into the grade?

    Paper loss from being removed from album?

    No, I don't think so. That is normal for 82F Stamps. OPC-like rough cut.

    "The Glue/Tape Stain – When this particular flaw is present, the card will drop into the PSA Good 2 range regardless of the other attributes of the card. The card may grade slightly higher if the face of the card exhibits strong eye appeal. Often times, you will see a card that appears to be a PSA EX-MT 6 or better on the front but the reverse stain provides the kiss of death. In these cases, it is possible for the card to achieve a higher grade but only slightly higher." - Grading Tips from Joe Orlando, PSA

    That would do it. I didn't even notice in hand. Sigh. Even when I was looking for defects only noticed the top one. At least there are likely to be none lower!

    Two relatively large and obvious stains, I think 2 is correct.
