Appealing a duplicate

I just got a valid waypoint rejected as a duplicate when it clearly is not. I was going to appeal it, but I don't see there is an button option to appeal it. But I can see other older duplicates in my contributions where the appeal button is indeed there. Has something changed on recent duplicates and being able to appeal them? I'm not keen on resubmitting it in case it gets rejected incorrectly again as a duplicate and then I get a warning

    Can you provide the name and coordinates of the nomination? And ideally the picture you used?

    Thanks for offering to help out. It's a sports field next to another one and the pictures are somewhat similar. You can clearly see on a google map using satellite view that they are two distinct fields. They are in different cells and I'm 99.99% certain that no one else nominated it as well. It appears that voters thought they were the same field.

    My question though is not related to why it was considered a duplicate or if it's in Lightship somewhere. My question is why isn't there any ability to appeal it? My other old duplicates all have the appeal button showing, and as do my rejections. It's been over 30 days since I last appealed something so I could appeal a contribution nowif I chose to. But apparently not this one as there isn't an appeal button showing.
