Vespasian BMCRE 45 note


BMCRE 45 note, RSC 541 Rome mint, 69-70 A.D. Obv - Head of Vespasian, laureate, r. Rev - Titus and Domitian, togate, seated l. side by side on curule chairs, each holding branch extended in r. hand, l. hands at sides. aVF A reverse that announces Vespasian's desire to found a dynasty. Titus and Domitian are represented here as magistrates holding the branch of peace. A rare type. A coin that looks much better in hand than the picture allows. I was pleasantly surprised when I first saw it. A reverse I have sought after for quite sometime. Earlier this year (2006) Harlan J Berk sold a coin of this type that was both an obv. and rev. die match for mine. With a casual look around, I was able to find another die match.
