Then why do I see distractions on the third coin?

There's no such thing as a stupid question. Well, not really. That's just something I tell myself because I ask so many.

Those distractions might be imperfections in the slab; why don't you ask the auction co ?

I agree. I don't see any obvious coin issues but the slab have some marks

While the slab might be to blame for some of what you see, the issue around the "R" in "AMERICA" on the reverse of the third coin is clearly an issue with/on the coin.

This surface issue would keep me from purchasing the set as a "70" set.

Unbelievable. A modern proof with a milk spot comes back a 70. Once a modern proof has milk spots, its worth melt.
The collection is in your mind. Dispose of your albums and free your mind from the tyranny of holes.

I stand corrected. That goober on the "R" is not good and on magnification there is a small buddy spot in the "E" next to it.

Re: selling for spot (interesting choice of words). On the proof I would agree it would sell at a major discount but I have sold quite a few coins from this set and spotted RP 70's still go for a decent price. Spots were noted in title and description and visible on pic .

I can remember getting around $170 for one with spots (plural) and around $100 for the 69's (RP's). This was a few years ago

Sometimes spots develop after they've been slabbed.

Milk spots will appear on the coin after it has been graded sometimes. I've seen some really extreme examples before.

At present spotted, clouded, or milk blurs on the ASE, especially the Proofs, are avoided by the vast majority of set builders.

Anyone who has gotten excited about getting an ASE, especially a proof, at a GREAT price, probably didn't look long enough to see a cloud or spotting.

This has nothing to do with the grade of the coin when it was graded. That spotting, clouding, and toning occurred almost exclusively after encapsulation.

Everyone, myself included, who has built or worked on an ASE set of one type or another has received a "bad" coin they didn't expect.

Trying to sell "bad" coins by honestly noting the problem, rather than surprising a bidder who did not look close enough, will result in significantly lower bids.

Being cheesy and just putting a bad coins photos up with no mention of the problem (or "accidentally putting up blurry photos) will result in a lot of returns and bad feedback.

Forget the spots on the coin. It has a "First Strike" label! That's got to make it worth more. :)
