    What's your question?
    I love the old Italian coin designs.

    Lol nothing really. Foreign coins I have of my dad’s travels and I guess proud to have some of mixed foreign coins.

    Those (and other Italian coins of the period) have very handsome designs, and in this particular case, the acmonital (stainless steel) composition usually stood up very well to the test of time. Most circulated very well. This one is a tiny bit scuffy, but I suspect it looks much better in hand than in the pictures.

    Lovely reverse. It’s probably the story of how Athena offered the people an olive tree, beating out Poseidon’s offer of a saltwater spring.
    People like the olive tree so much they named their city Athens in respect.
    Olive tree was planted near the Erectheion.

    I had these in great quantity and weren't worth much for a big sack of these when selling them on ebay. But they are lovely coins I'll say that ;)

    Also not many coins around the world were made of stainless steel, like magnets.

    On the other hand, if you happen to come across banknotes issued before the Euro took over, folks will consider Lira notes around or near the exchange rates given condition.
    I had some L.100,000's in my collection and each were worth at least $30 a piece.

    Thanks. The coins and banknotes just started going through my dad’s that he kept from here and there. Other old American coins as well but I’m learning. Just like posting them and many are interesting.

    Ones in uncirculated condition will bid higher, but some of my notes had folds or pinholes, a few with writing on them which lower the value a little. The lot I sold also had some 50,000's and 10,000's thrown in, a collector in Europe paid a tidy sum for my stack of currency.

    That is great. If my dad were alive today, he would probably say, sell sell sell lol! Save for my son.
