After waiting almost 2 months I am pleased to finally add this very rare Vespasian to my collection:

I know there are a few of these bare head Vespasians kicking around Forum.  I'm happy to finally be in the "club"!

Welcome to the club Jay. That is an excellent acquisition. These bare headed portraits are very difficult to find.

Today in the mail I received a wonderful gift from Andrew.  Yes, it's a Minerva reverse but not one of the standard 4 that are seen later in his reign.  Yes, there are some encrustations and flan lamination issues but the portrait is great and I'm happy to have it.  Thanks Andrew!

I was very surprised to find in the mail today an unsolicited coin.  My good friend and fellow Flavian collector Orfew sent this unexpected gift.  A denarius of Domitian.  But not just any Domitian denarius, one with PONT in the legend.  The typical legend reads PM, but this short lived issue has PONT and is very rare.  Needless to say it was a generous gift and I'm very happy to add it to my Flavian collection.

While I was photographing my new gift above I decided to take some better pics of old coins.  Both Titus denarii.  Take a look!

Nice gift!
And the new photos look great too. Not all bronzes look better on black backgrounds, imo, but I think it  can really highlight the silver ones. Nice job.

Been a long time since I bought anything new.   These two beauties arrived in the post today:

A very rare Titus with Agrippa II.  Only 3 on acsearch, Meshorer 160b, not listed in Hendin or RPC.  Shares the same dies as the CNG specimen:

and another Titus with Agrippa IIHendin 1284

Thanks for looking.  Comments always appreciated

I love finding misattributed coins.  This one was sold as Vespasian.  Must have missed the T at the beginning of the legend.  I've been on a Titus buying spree lately
