You don't often come across mistakes on Domitian's denarii, and when you do they are highly collectable. Luckily, I was recently offered a piece with a major omission.

That's amazing David.  Never seen anything like this on a coin of Domitian.  The engraver must have been bored doing all those Minerva's...
