So I just received this Vespasian with a prow reverse. It is not as scarce as the Titus with the matching reverse. I thought it would be neat to have the matching pair.

Vespasian A.D. 69-79. AR denarius (19.3 mm, 2.82 g, 6 h).
Rome mint, struck A.D. 77-78.
Obv: IMP CAESAR VESPASIANVS AVG, laureate head right
Rev: COS VIII, prow of galley right, star above.
RIC 108; BMCRE 210; RSC 136.
Agora Auctions Lot 53-176 April 5, 2016
Ex: Agora Auctions






Titus. AR Denarius 19 mm (3.25 g), as Caesar, AD 69-79. Rome, under Vespasian, AD 77/8.
Obv: T CAESAR IMP VESPASIANVS, laureate head of Titus right.
Rev: COS VI, prow of galley right, sides ornameted with intricate cross-hatch and maeander patterns; above, star with sixteen rays. RIC 950 (R); BN 202; BMC 226; RSC 68.
Ex: Incitatus Coins

Nice to have matching reverse designs for father and son. Too bad Domitian didn't follow along with the same design.

@DavidSV
The Vespasian will be relatively easy. There is also a left facing facing variety which will be a bit more difficult. As for the titus, I was very luck to get that one. There were 0 examples in the Reka Devnia hoard, there are 2 examples on acsearch, there is one example on Coin archives but it is one of the 2 on acsearch, and there are no examples in the CNG archive. There are 3 examples in the Forvm ancient Coins galleries (one is mine).

I wish you luck!
