Great dolphin! A must have for Flavian collectors. Unfortunately I don't have one. Congrats!

Super Coin. 5-Stars in my book.

Great reverse, my favorite Flavian Emperor. Congratulation

A great addition to any collection!

This is actually a very nice specimen indeed. One of my favorite emblems to appear on a Roman coin, and one that was to have a wonderful Renaissance history in the press of Aldus Manutius.

I love the reverse. Great portrait with a lot of character!
