I have two PCGS PR69 silver Ikes, $20 for the pair. That's almost certainly what happened.

Depending on who graded a coin it could be almost anything.

I mostly only buy 70's unless they are signed and slabbed or something. Just feel like they would gain the most value over time if you are aiming for an investment.

Depends - for most modern NIFC not worth spending the extra money to get a 70 as survival rates for these coins is high. Yes there are certain cases where the population of 70's is low for these coins but again I would rather put the extra jump in price required for 70's toward a coin that was actually used and say a 66 or, with some modern circulating coins, 70 as there are bargains out there in that grade (Kennedy silver proofs modern Lincoln proofs etc).

Depends a little on the time period of the coin. Obviously classics aren't going to be a 69 or 70. Which is most of what I do. But I also collect modern commem $ proofs. With those I'm happy with a 69 from the early years. Say '96 Atlanta olympics. When 70S were rare. But now the mint is cranking out almost all 70s. So that's what I look for. 2019 Apollo commem, I wanted a 70. But I've found more recent 70s don't carry much of a premium.

Depends on the series I guess, I collect comics also and a 9.8 can bring substantial price than a 9.6.

When or what was the first coin graded as a 70? I seem to remember many years ago that the grade 70 was a theoretical state of perfection unobtainable in the real world.

i have several MS70-slabbed ASEs, but I'm not particularly wild about them. I mean, they're nice & all, but I find nothing wrong with holding 69s over 70s.. I'm trying to fill up my ASE collection, one aspect of it is that I want slabbed specimens of only the burnished issues. I have 5 different dates so far, all slabbed at either 69 or 70, but that's the only aspect of the collection to be in slabs. I don't much care for the expense, but i'll bite the bullet just for this one aspect of the lot. I otherwise don't go for slabbed 70s (or 69s) of anything.
