This coin is a masterpiece. I especially like the patination, and the only thing I would add, is to say that I wish it were in my collection. Congratulations on having one of the nicest Flavian bronzes I've seen in a private collection!

Now this is absolutely and utterly incomparable. The style of the reverse, beauty of the patination in the fields, exceptionally vivid contrasts and a wonderful expressive bust make this an absolute treasure. What a coin!
