If the staple scratch is not deep enough, sometimes it is OK.
If it digs in and you can see shiny metal underneath, that's bad.
This one seems very minor.
Is there a gouge on the feather?

If that is a "gouge" or an indentation from an object, I do not consider that significant. The placement of it also, again if it is an indent/gouge, is forgivable. Should it be on his nose, or the date, or his forehead...that would be a problem for me.

(Assuming that's pre-prong NGC plastic. If so, it's refreshing to see a coin without those gnarly white fangs intruding into the photos.)
@Fred Weinberg is correct. It is a slight die crack that is only visible at the angle shown. Your knowledge and experience never ceases to amaze me!
