I always wanted one of these.  While it is far from high grade, it had worn down to a pleasant worn old coin.

Vespasian. AD 69-79. AR Denarius (17.5mm, 3.03 g, 6h). “Judaea Capta” commemorative. Rome mint. Struck late December AD 69-early AD 70. Laureate head right / Judaea seated right at base of trophy; IVDAEA in exergue. RIC II 2; Hendin 1479; RSC 226. Fine, lightly toned.  Ex-CNG
