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. We 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.
