Titus as Caesar RIC II V1485
Titus as Caesar. 69-79 A.D. Uncertain Asian Mint (o mint). 76 A.D. (2.95g, 19.4mm, 0h). Obv: T CAES IMP CESP CENS, laureate head r., annulet below tip of neck. Rev: FIDES PVBL, hands clasped over caduceus, two poppies and two corn ears. RIC II 1485 (R), RPC 1459. Ex. Harry N. Sneh Collection.

A scarce issue from the elusive o mint in operation for the Flavians in 76 A.D. Showing the scarcity of this issue, this same obverse die was used for the RIC plate coin for 1482, BMC pl. 17.14, and my two other Titus o mint coins V1481 and V1486. This specimen also has an unusual 0 degree die axis.

The style of these 'o' mint beauties is quite good. Congrats!
