A stunning silver denarius of Vespasian in near mint condition, with deep iridescent toning. The reverse type bears a striking resemblance to the famous "Tribute penny" of Tiberius. In this case however, Vespasian himself appears seated on the reverse. The highly detailed portrait almost brought to life by the vivid toning. A wonderful example in absolutely superb condition.
