    Does anybody know the difference between a PR70 and a PF70? I know 70 is the highest grade a coin can get, but is there a PR proof and a PF proof?

    Thanks for your help.

    Absolutely no difference.

    It was PR-70 when I was growing up, but that was a couple of decades ago.

    Either PR or PF is an acceptable prefix; they both mean "proof."

    Yep, they both mean proof 70. PCGS uses PR and NGC uses PF.

    And for a second there I was having my doubts (Olympic Figurer Skating).

    Guess it's not the booze? :mouth:

    They are exactly the same and are interchangeable. Just like XF and EF. They mean the same, just some graders use one, some the other.
