Italy 1929-R 10 centesimi
This type was struck for the kingdom of Italy 1919-37. The 1919 is the only scarce date. The type replaced the larger 10 g issue which matched the French ten centimes. Vittorio Emanuele III succeeded his father Umberto upon the latter's assassination in 1900, but by 1930 he was the helpless tool of the Fascists.
