Comments During the German occupation banknotes were printed by 4 different printers in Athens. As a result there was not absolute uniformity – for example some notes had letters to the left of the numbers, others to the right. The size of the numbers also varied at times. Towards the end of the occupation there were also cases where multiple copies of notes were printed with the same serial number. This note has letters to the left and large numbers.
Date printed on this note is 20 July 1944
