@Mammothtooth . The reverse is Fides with plate of fruits and corn ears.
Obverse legend ends in COS XI so it's either RIC 288 (Domitian without aegis) or RIC 289 (with aegis). I think I see the aegis so 289.
The coin is OK, the only thing I would be bothered about is the problem behind the portrait. If it didn't cost much, it's a deal.
I just won a slight upgrade to my Domitian Macedonian shield coin. Hoping the poor lighting means it'll be better in hand:
I got it for about 28.00…..I probably should have passed, but I got caught up with Dupondius, cause I like them… A better one is coming from my Polish Amigo
Thanks for the comment
Here is an as with the same (similar?) reverse and lots of problems - it cost $10, which is okay by me:
Domitian Æ As
IMP CAES DOMIT AVG GERM • COS XII C[ENS PER P P], laureate bust right with
aegis / FIDEI [PVBLICAE] S-C, Fides standing right holding ears of grain and basket of fruit.
RIC 486; RCV 2804.
