Product Description: The Kingdom of Italy had a Fascist government from 1922-1943, led by Benito Mussolini. It was closely allied with Nazi Germany and lost control of most of the country in 1943. Offered here are 3 examples of the first currency issued in 1944 by the provisional Italian government established with Allied support in the non-Fascist region. Not long after the war ended on May 7, 1945, a constitutional referendum was held in June of 1946 and Italy abolished the monarchy and became a republic. These 1, 5, and 10 Lire notes were obtained from original Italian bank packs and are in choice crisp uncirculated condition—an exceptional state of preservation given the tumultuous history these notes could have otherwise endured. Each note will be housed in an archival-quality plastic sleeve and presented in a luxurious black velvet bag with certificate of authenticity. Your collection is guaranteed to match the pristine quality of the notes shown in the photos.
