    Common up through AU58, in mint state a very tough coin.

    Another common crown that becomes much more desirable in high grade:

    Nice! Was this one of the ones sold by allileggie99 recently? Upthread I mentioned buying one of these from that seller. Price good enough to suggest possible nonauthenticity, but mine hasn't arrived yet for checking.

    No. I purchased mine from a U.S. seller. I did see yours and I did not see anything that lead me to think it was fake other than the price. Maybe the seller just has a hoard he/she needs to cash in on. Would like to get a better look at the denticles and edge. Hope it turns out to be the real deal.

    1911 Italy 5 Lire struck for the 50th anniversary of unification. (Had to sell off a bunch of other coins to help pay for it, --no regrets about that!)
