I think the higher grade one... The edges of the cardboard in the album will hide some of the damage...
But I would also keep looking for a problem free one down the line as $ allows...
I probably upgraded 7-8 of my coins as I went along completing the set, one of them actually a couple days after I completed it.

I'd put the higher grade in the album; the album will tend to downplay the rim damage.

This is not a super expensive coin, so you could upgrade at some point in the future as well.

I think the whole purpose of having a type set is to show the different designs. My opinion therefore is to have as high a grade as one can afford to show the details of each coin. With low grade coins the details just aren't there. I chose EF or better for my type set and tried to stick to that since the designs are well revealed on each coin. The decision on what to include is up to each individual and their funds to get them. I do not worry about upgrades since I bought the grade I wanted to start with.

I prefer as high a grade, problem free coin as I can afford as well. I also strive for a consistent look to the pages....not always easy.

A mint state coin next to a good coin is just not appealing to me.

I don't use the 7070 for my type set since it omits quit a few varieties.
My type set is based on the NGC Registry Type Set - 1793-1964.
That's 97 coins.
I'm missing 2.

A 1796 quarter and a 1796 or 1797 small eagle reverse half dollar.
I'm waiting until I hit the lottery before I buy them.
Which means I'm HIGHLY unlikely to ever own them.

I'm sitting here thinking, if I had your collection I would burn mine!

Since the 7070 Album is meant to be a "type" album, I think it's most important that the coins in the album clearly show the distinctions between one type and another. I have other coins that I own for their investment value, but the ones in my 7070 album are not certified and I try to get examples that have the best looking details even if they have been improperly cleaned, have rim damage, etc.

Coins and investment in the same sentence! Hmmmm, would love to hear your strategy on that someday.

Many in my 7070 are certified. Well, they were until I broke them out.
