MS70 vs. MS69
I know this horse has been beat to death but I gotta ask. Is there really that much difference between the two to warrant this price difference? Looking at these two it looks like, to me at least, the only difference is one is a 69 the other is a 70. Keep in mind I am very new to this and I have an untrained eye, so take me to school if I am wrong or missed something.
