I’ve given the five-star treatment to all of Jay’s coins because they are always so fascinating and educational. v-drome’s gemstone with the same details as one of Jay’s coins is pretty cool too!

Thanks!

Here's my latest addition:

I've always wanted this reverse type, either for Vespasian or Titus.  I managed to get the rarer one for Titus last week.  Arrived today.  Only 3 others in Forum galleries (orfew, 2 Atherton)

Although a little banged up, it has a wonderful portrait and charming reverse.

Thanks for looking.

One of my favourite denarius types!

Re: Extremely rare Titus sestertius added (R3)!

Added an extremely rare sestertius from 72 CE today.  So rare that RIC doesn't have an image in the plates, only citing one example from the Museo Nazionale Roma.

A lovely portrait of Titus.  Very hard red encrustations remain with some old scratches on the reverse.  I'm very happy to have snatched this one up!

Congrats,  it was in my collection but had to sell it to buy another coin. Did you buy it from me? I do not remember...ah no,  Steve bought it...

It is ex Emporium Hamburg

Re: Titus Capta added but maybe not what you think

Cool!  Thanks KC, I'll add that to the provenance.  I know several Flavian collectors missed it when it was listed, so glad I was able to snatch it up!

Added this Titus today.  Usually sold as a Judaea Capta issue, most believe it is related to Agricola's victory in Britain, giving Titus his 15th acclamation.  Worn, but lovely old cabinet toning

I've Always wanted an original struck Cavino.  This isn't one, but it appears to be an early cast:

Can't go wrong.  Nice big coin.

Here is a very interesting coin from the Roman Republic.  The first "Judaea Capta" type and it's almost 100 years before Vespasian.
