While this coin is rated as common in RIC, it does not come up for sale very often. I really like the unusual reverse with BONVS EVENTVS or "Good outcome". I also think the portrait has a lot of charm. The old cabinet toning is even and lovely.
I like the denarii of Titus. I am currently trying to add a few more to my collection.
