Vespasian RIC II 1339
Vespasian. 69-79 A.D. uncertain Spanish mint, 69-70 A.D. (3.42g, 18.0mm, 0 h.). Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head left. Rev: LIBERTAS PVBLICA; Libertas stg. l. with pileus and rod. RIC II 1339 (R2).

A fairly scarce coin from a short run from an unknown mint, but tentatively assigned to Spain, perhaps Tarraco. This was a fairly common reverse under Galba from his Spanish mint, and the left facing portraits were common there as well.

This example is a bit off center and has some wear, but the coin maintains a good weight. The die axis is interesting as well at an unusual zero degrees.
