Two new Vespasian denarii arrived today.

The first an antiquarian type with laurel trees copying Augustus:

The second, Victory on prow rated as C2 but has been very tough to find lately.  Currently none for sale anywhere!

Thanks Andrew!

I finally got around to taking a new picture of my Athenian Owl.  Been meaning to do this for years.  I think it turned out quite nice.

Re: Rare year 1 Vespasian tetradrachm from Forum!
« Reply #289 on: November 30, 2020, 01:16:48 pm »
Thanks Q!

Just got a great coin from right here at Forum.  A fairly rare year 1 tetradrachm (LA) from Alexandria.  Year 2 (LB) coins are pretty common as Vespasian churned out tetradrachms to pay the legions.  Year 1 coins can be specifically dated to 1 July - 28 Aug 69 A.D.  The legions proclaimed Vespasian Emperor on July 1st and the Egyptian new year began at the end of August, so year one coins only lasted 2 months at most.

Typical fabric for the type but with a very nice portrait and Nike reverse.  It's all there.

Thanks for looking

Re: Vespasian Judaea Capta Sestertius added
« Reply #292 on: December 16, 2020, 04:21:10 pm »
Just added a common Judaea Capta sestertius.  I've wanted one of these for a long time.  Actually misattributed by the dealer (although still as a Judaea Capta).

https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-167004

Some corrosion, especially on the reverse, but it is what it is.  I'm happy to have it in my collection.  A historical coin that was tough to photograph due to the corrosion.  The dealers picture was over exposed and flat.  This photo is very close to what it looks like in hand.
Thanks for looking!

Re: 2 Judaea Capta's in 2 days
« Reply #296 on: December 17, 2020, 09:52:59 pm »
The second Judaea Capta arrived 2 days after the first!

https://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-167044

This one has a standing bound captive in addition to the seated captive, rather than just Vespasian standing over seated one.  It's a hefty 36mm and is not as rough in hand.  A nice unmolested sestertius with recognizable devices.

For the first one see the link above.

Thanks for looking!
