Titus as Caesar RIC II V1481
Titus as Caesar. 69-79 A.D. Uncertain Asian Mint (o mint). 76 A.D. (2.89g, 18.4mm, 6h). Obv: T CAES IMP VESP CENS, laureate head r., annulet below tip of neck. Rev: COS V, across field; eagle standing left, head right, wings half raised, on altar. VF. RIC II V1481 (R), BMC 485, RPC 1457. Ex. Harry N. Sneh Collection.

A scarce issue from the elusive o mint in operation for the Flavians in 76 A.D. Showing the scarcity of this issue, this same obverse die was used for the RIC plate coin for 1482, BMC pl. 17.14, and my two other Titus o mint coins V1485 and V1486.
