Yes - the coin is correctly graded at Proof 70
No - the coin appears to be over-graded
those white dots on the fields are normal for proofs. I can see this as being a 70 from PCGS.

Could have developed the spots after being slabbed but i really dont know? I think spots on proof 70 coins have been discussed before?

A 70 is always in hand grading. It is SUPER Hard to differentiate a 69 from a 70 by pictures.
I have 70s and I have 69s, and I couldn't begin to tell you why one is one and why one is the other.
It will probably grade as 69, but it could be a 70--that can't be determined by the naked eye. One needs magnification--at least, I do.
Grading a proof from a image is impossible IMO.
Wow, I thought that would be a hands-down vote for 69 - I'm very surprised. I think I'll just stick to my 69s, with no spots.
Sometimes I think they just call them all 69s, and then let every 'x' number get a 70.
Or maybe they flip a coin now and again to see which get 70s.
That is not an attractive coin at all.
It might look better in hand, but I see slight flaws on it that I would have thought would have kept it from a 70 grade.

I have never seen a PR-70 Ike that I would call a PR-70.
