Found in the garden


I have been digging over our garden for the past 3 years. Have found old broken bricks and tiles buried by the builder instead of taking it to a dump; have found old broken bottles; have found old hinges and parts of doors. Nothing of interest. But then last week I found a 50 centesimi coin from the Fascist era.

 50 centesimi coins were produced from 1936 al 1943 (series: Empire) and are very common. However, the coins minted in 1939 are interesting because it was the first year steps were taken to reduce the cost of the coinage by replacing nickel by stainless steel.

As a discovery it cannot quite compete with the anglo-saxon treasure found recently in England but much better than another rusted hinge.
