Greece 50 Drachma 1935 P104a AUnc
In 1935, Greece used the services of the Banque de France to print three different value banknotes. It was a complete departure from previous issues and unfortunately was never repeated. I say, unfortunately, because they are exquisitely designed in that inimitable French style in pastel shades. We are delighted to be able to offer now high-grade examples of the 50 drachma dated 1935. (P104a) The front shows a young woman holding a sheaf of wheat while on the back we find a detail of the relief of Elusis alongside a young woman holding an olive branch and vignettes of roses and olives. An exquisite shortlived issue in Crisp AUnc.
