Italy 1 centesimo, 2, 5, and 10 Centesimi  1861 to 1900
Italy 1 centesimo, 2, 5, and 10 Centesimi 1861 to 1900

Nice coin, James. Italy issued these copper coins in 1, 2, 5, and 10 centesimi denominations over the years 1861 to 1900. These coins are old enough to carry a little numismatic (coin collector) value, especially when they are in good condition. The wear on your coin will work against value. If your coin has good eye appeal, like the one in our picture, that will increase value, even with substantial wear.

Coins after 1893 have no go-tee.
