I honestly don't see the point/reason/justification for the 70 insanity. A 69 is so nice in and of itself, to pay the premium for the ability to say 'It's a 70' is IMO, a waste.
But that's what's great about this hobby, you collect what you like, and that's that.
True because by the time it gets to the grader it has been removed from whatever it was in when it arrived and is just in a flip.
More likely a milk spot which has nothing to do with anyone handling it
You're thinking of the one that went for 87k. That sale was an outlier and significantly over the 2nd highest. Why it was such an outlier who knows but it was the first PCGS one to hit the market in several years which likely played a role.
Most people that bought the set didn't care about the ASE and almost no ASE collectors spent that much extra on a set with all that gold just for the ASE. Are there more in sets sure, but there is also likely a larger than normal attrition rate given that the collectors that really wanted it didn't want to buy all the gold and the people that wanted the gold generally didn't care about it
Bulk submissions aren't graded by the same people grading seated dollars for PCGS/NGC
Agreed. When I buy new coins to go into my NGC Registry type set, I buy PR-69 graded pieces. I have one PR-70 to say I have one. It’s a Jefferson Nickel and it cost me $35.
All the more reason to consider the bulk graded MS-69's and 70's as suspect.
