Titus RIC II 0124
Titus. 79-81 A.D. AR Denarius. Rome Mint. ( 3.46 g, 18mm, 6h). Obv: IMP TITVS CAES VESPASIAN AVG PM, laureate head right. Rev: TRP IX IMP XV COS VIII PP, seat draped; above triangular frame decorated with five or more palmettes (ex CNG, Michael Joffre Collection)

A sharp example from Titusí pulvinara series. This example has a well formed frame, and the details are quite sharp. Despite its smaller flan, the legend is complete, and the obverse is stellar. In hand the coin is nicer and less grainy than the picture makes it appear.

Very sharp strike!

The triangular frame seems to be less common than the semi-circular frame. Also, the number of palmettes varies depending on the whim of the engraver.
