What to my eyes makes this a highly desirable coin is not the rarity but the bold portrait which was described by the Flavian collector who sold it to me as "striking". I tend to agree. The reverse is weakly struck (worn die?) but well centered.
Struck on a huge flan and weighing 3.48 g. This coin is a true beauty in hand.
