This is another is "replacement" Sestertius I bought to fill the empty space left by a coin that was stolen from the mail this year. I noticed that prices have obviously gone up since I started collecting in 2016 because I can't get Sestertii of the same quality for the same budget any more.
Anyway, this was my beloved first Sestertius of Domitian (now in the hands of someone who can never appreciate it as much as I did). I guess I liked it better because of the beautiful Tiber patina high relief, and the absence of cleaning scratches and pits:


Please show your Sestertii of Domitian!

My coin is very similar to the one posted by @Julius Germanicus which is a bit surpising in that they are about ten years apart. One other thing that can be seen on this coin would be the edge of the die which can be seen on the left side of the reverse.
