This reverse type is quite rare for Vespasian. I already have one of these but this one is only the second I have seen available for purchase for the last 3 years so I grabbed it.
This Nemesis reverse is copied from a reverse of a denarius of Claudius. Vespasian is well known for reviving earlier types. Perhaps this is a sentimental looking back to the Julio Claudians, or perhaps it was a way of reinforcing the legitimacy of his rule. It could be both or neither but it is fun to speculate.
This one is not in the exceptional condition of my other example but it is still very nice I'm my opinion.
