Default A Coin Die for the Gaius and Lucius Reverse on Augustan Denarii- Joe Geranio

This is an interesting find of a rare coin die from the Augustan period. It shows the reverse of the denarius of Augustus with his grandsons Gaius and Lucius Caesars on the reverse. I have been collecting photos of Julio Claudian coin dies, and there have only been 4 on the market that I have seen for sale in 28 years of study. Here is the coin for the coin dies description:
Augustus. 27 BC-AD 14. AR Denarius (18mm, 3.77 g). Lugdunum (Lyon) mint. Struck 2 BC-AD 4. Laureate head right / Caius and Lucius Caesar standing facing, holding shields and spears between them; simpulum and lituus above. RIC I 207; BMCRE 519; RSC 43.

See photo number 2 for actual denarius.
