Titus as Caesar RIC-1074
AR Denarius, 3.19g
Rome mint, 79 AD (Vespasian)
Obv: T CAESAR IMP VESPASIANVS; Head of Titus, laureate, bearded, l.
Rev: TR POT VIII COS VII; Quadriga l., with flower
RIC 1074 (R). BMC -. RSC -. BNC 228.
Ex Harry N. Sneh Collection.

This type is very rare with the left facing portrait. RIC only lists it as 'rare', although this is the only one I've ever seen in trade. The reverse type was carried over when Titus became Augustus and it too is rare with a left facing portrait.

Condition wise there is a lot to be desired, but the main devices are visible. Not much better looking than the RIC plate coin from Paris (BNC 228).

Nice example of a rare type.
