Vespasian Hemidrachm
Vespasian: Cappadocia, Caesarea. AR Hemidrachm. RPC 1659. Sear GIC 735. Obverse: AVTOKP KAICAP OVECPACIANOC CEBA, Laureate head right. Reverse: Nike advancing right, holding wreath and palm.

I think this is my favorite coin I have posted so far. I think it is the detail in conjunction with the small size. I'm glad I do not have to engrave dies this small.
