A-Mazing.  I have to love how the obverse has the iconically Flavian retrograde legend.  That's just icing on an incredible, three-tiered wedding cake.  ...The portrait is all you could want for a late issue.

Thanks so much/ gals/ guys🥰 Sorry for late response just got home from work! That coin was bugging me for past two months. I went to bed/ could not get it off my mind/ so I got up went down to my basement/ turned on the computer and hit the buy button! Then I went back to bed/ sleep like a baby.

Best thing I do not have to pay a cent for it. A nice collector from Spain has decided to purchase my entire butterfly collection (what is still in basement) over ten year plan/ buying 3K euros worth each month. That way I can get some better coins. According too Calicó the Vespasian aureus is C ="common".
