https://www.cointalk.com/threads/rough-but-rare.371467/ This month I came across the following coin. At this rate it might become an ongoing series. Vespasian Æ As, 9.87g Rome mint, 77-78 AD Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIAN COS VIII; Head of Vespasian, laureate, l. Rev: VICTORIA AVGVST; S C in field; Victory stg. r. on prow, with wreath and palm RIC 1014 (R). BMC 740. BNC 778. Acquired from London Ancient Coins, January 2021. A slightly scarce left facing portrait with the perennial favourite Victory on prow - a type more commonly found on the as issues at Rome. Unlike the VICTORIA NAVALIS variant which likely celebrated a minor naval victory from the Jewish War, this Victory can be viewed in more generic terms. A similar type was earlier struck in silver on the denarii. I really do love overlooked pieces such as this. To me they are no less interesting than their more pristine brothers - and they're cheaper!
