Italy, Banca D'Italia, 500 lire, (1947-48), serial C91 / 071310, ex-Malone. SCWPM-80a. With case: 12-1/2" x 8-1/4" x 2". This is the first 500 lire we've seen from the wreck as the vast majority of Italian notes salvaged were of the 1000 lire denomination. Its beautiful design is nearly complete with most of the paper degradation and faint stains in the margins. With original display box, salvager's certificate, and booklet. Pedigreed to the collection of diver Bart Malone, past curator of the Museum of New Jersey Maritime History. Recovered from: Andrea Doria, sunk in 1956 off Massachusetts
