    Trajan (AD 98-117). AE sestertius (33mm, 24.67 gm, 7h). NGC Choice VF★ 5/5 - 4/5, Fine Style. Rome, AD 103-111. IMP CAES NERVAE TRAIANO AVG GER DAC P M TR P COS V P P, laureate half-length bust of Trajan right, wearing full aegis tied at the right shoulder, with arm and chest separation, continuing to the back with detail and decoration / SPQR OPTIMO PRINCIPI, Spes walking left, flower upward in right hand, holding folds of skirt with left; S-C across fields. RIC II 519.

    From the Morris Collection.

    Given the amazing bust type, unusually high relief, slightly concave reverse and carefully executed style, it is the opinion of this cataloger that this sestertius is in all actuality, an unpublished presentation medallion.
