Watch out for this old Lire, you could be rich and not know it

In the passage from the Lira for the Euro, several people kept all the older cones in the hope that they could become rare coins and thus gain great value over time.

In this respect it is of fundamental importance state of conservation in the valuation of rare coins.
But it is important to understand how numismatics works and how to understand with certainty what value the old coins we keep at home may have today. The most commonly used abbreviations to define the conservation status are:
1. B = Beautiful (coin not very legible and smooth);
2. MB = Very nice (large coin wear with parts not legible);
3. BB = Very nice (the reliefs retain 6-7/10 of metal but the coin is still legible and above all intact).

4. SPL = Beautiful (coin that circulated very little and its reliefs are clear, retaining 8-9 / 10 metal).
5. FDC = Brilliant Uncirculated (coin that practically did not circulate and which leads to the conditions of exit of the coin).
6. FS = Proof (coin subjected to a very specific manufacturing process aimed at making its specular funds).
