No, this is not about sports equipment! This is the 5000 drachma issued by Greece in 1942 when it was under German Occupation. Despite the privations of war, Greece still managed to issue impressively illustrated notes which reflected its considerable heritage. On this 5000 drachma the statue of Nike at Samothrace dominates the front with workers to the left and right. On the back is a farmer sowing seeds. Crisp GEF/Unc

Greece War Medal 1940-41

This is an interesting medal for our growing band of collectors of war medals. An original medal issued to members of the Greek armed forces during the Second World War. These pieces should be of great interest to collectors, as due to the comparatively smaller numbers issued they are not so often seen or offered for sale! The number of pieces available is quite limited, and we are now offering them at a very reasonable price.
