Vespasian RIC II 0681
Vespasian 69-79 A.D. AR Denarius, Rome Mint, 74 A.D. (2.90g, 21.1m, 6h). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESP AVG, laureate head right. Rev: COS V across field between two laurel trees. RIC II 681, BMC 133, RSC 110.

Despite the odd shaped flan, I like this coin. The Flavians used a number of older reverse types, and this is an exact copy of a reverse from Augustus. Two laurel trees were planted outside Augustus door during his reign. Despite the wear on this coin, both the obverse and reverse legends are complete.
