Vespasian the Younger COTD!

Acquiring a coin of Vespasian the Younger, Domitian's chosen adopted heir, has been a dream of mine for many years. A Flavian Grail coin if ever there was one! Finally, I was able to win a superb example last month at auction. It arrived this week and I'm absolutely thrilled!

Thank you for looking!

This is a fantastic addition David.  Several years ago I bid on a Vespasian Jr but lost out.  This is an important coin, not only because of it's rarity but because of the history behind it.  Well done!  It belongs in your collection.
