A wonderful portrait of Domitian with amazing detail, even his eye balls are rendered!  It's a lovely coin in hand and even the dolphin comes across as whimsical.  I'm very pleased to have it in my collection.

Don't let someone challenge it with the more common one with TRP on the reverse.

I am a non competitive collector.  My post was to point out that there are variations more important than grade.   Yours is a nice coin.

Both are very nice coins, and expertly photographed/presented.
