Allied Military Currency in World War 2

Post#1 » Tue Jul 26, 2016 8:57 pm

During WW2 the Allies issued Military Currency for a while in liberated and occupied countries.

I came across these recently on an auction web site.
1000 Lire notes are quite scarce. I believe the bottom one with star prefix might be a replacement note, following the pattern of US currency of the time.
