Italy 1 Centesimo and 2 Centesimi 1902 to 1908

These are some fun old coins that were minted under the reign of Vittorio Emanuele III (who ruled from 1900 to 1946). Although the denominations are small - 100 centesimi is equal to 1 lira - a few of these coins have significant value and all of them have solid values if they are in fully uncirculated condition. Both denominations were struck in bronze. Here is a breakdown of the catalog values for these coins:
