Vespasian RIC II 0005
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. Rome Mint. 21 Dec. 69 A.D.-early 70 A.D. (3.19g, 17.6m, 6h) Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AV[G], laureate head r. Rev: TITUS ET DOMIT[IAN CA]ES PRIN IV, Titus and Domitian riding r., hands outstretched. RIC II 5 (R), BMC p. 7, RSC 539. Ex Harry N. Sneh Collection.

Vespasian acted early to establish his sons as his successors as this denarius from his first issue at Rome shows. Worn, but well centered, this is a scarce denarius to find.

Another extremely rare early type. I haven't seen but a handful of these in trade in the last 10 years. Also, your example appears to be a reverse die match to mine. Bravo!
