For me, this coin has one of the most beautiful reverses

Fascist things come in small packages! :bleh: In all seriousness, slap a Liberty and a USA on their and I'd LOVE it.



being 1917 it is pre mussolini as he came to power in the 20's but still used victor emanuelle on the obverse of the coins for quite a while. early 20th century italian coins can be stunning.

I was at a local table top show today and came across it. It doesn't fit into my collecting themes but I just had to buy it.


Italy 1917 2 lire

Wow, I'd be hard pressed to have passed on that, too -- and it doesn't fit any of my themes either. What a beauty!
