VESPASIAN AR DENARIUS - JUDAEA CAPTA

RIC 1068, RSC 552, Hendin 1485, Choice EF, Encapsulated by NGC and graded AU, 5/5, 3/5, 3.26 grams, see additional photos, Struck Circa. 79 C.E.

Obverse: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG around laureate head of Vespasian right

Reverse: TR POT X COS VIIII, around draped Victory advancing left, erecting a trophy; beneath it sits weeping Jewish captive to left

One of the scarcer Judaea Capta denarius types and perhaps the FINEST example we have handled! BOLDLY and evenly struck all around and beautifully toned. Even the little Jewess and the shield all around are completely sharp. Even better than the recent Goldberg specimen which sold for $1050
