Vespasian RIC II 0944
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. RIC II 944. AR Denarius. Rome mint. 77-78 A.D. (3.32 g, 18./19 mm, 6h) Obv: r. to l out- IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head left. Rev: COS III in exergue, two oxen yoked left. RIC II 944, RSC 134a, BMC 209. Ex David Hendin.

Some discoloration on the obverse does not take away from the lack of wear, and even the hair maintains its detail. This denarius was part of an agricultural issue of Vespasian, and has one of the rarer left facing portraits. Right facing portraits may have been minted at a ratio of 10 to 1 against the left.

Way nicer than my example. Mine has cleaning scratches all over it... You really do have good taste for nice examples. I just wishyou would leave some for me
