Ancient Rome Vespasian Dupondius 69AD to 79AD
Vespasian (born 17 November 9, died 23 June 79) was Roman Emperor from AD 69 to AD 79. Many coins were issued with his image and inscription. This one sold in a 2012 auction by cgb.fr in Paris for about $275 US dollars. It is a gorgeous specimen. In worse shape, the selling price would be much lower.
