In 2003 I believe they sold Danish Returns and rifles not loaned to other countries. Doesn't make a lick of difference, its just a Garand

Would anyone pay a premium for a Greek returned M1? I doubt it.
Many would prefer one that never left US control.
Your CMP certificate alone will yield a small premium from some buyers who like the provenance

I received rifles in the 2008-2010 timeframe that had Greek writing taped to the stocks. M1s and carbines.

CMP used to designate USGI, Danish, Greek. Orest then said they would no longer designate origin...they all came from the Army. My first Garand was a North Store rack grade that was marked USGI. I actually bought it because of that provenance...but in the end it’s a Garand like any other!!

Perhaps as early as late Spring'04.

The Danish SG that I received on 16Apr'04 came with a Cert that mentioned "Danish".

I received my first Greek (SG $450) on 10Jun04.

At about that time, we started to see reports from fellows who had acquired the first Greek Rack Grades. Many/most, apparently, were graded at Rack Grade because of easily correctable issues (like wood). I took a chance and on 30Jul04 received my first (of 10, total, over the next 10 months) $295 Greek RGs.

I lucked out and all had minor, fixable issues and great bores/muzzles/throats.

All of my Greek Certs state "Greek" ... until the last 4 that I received in May'05 (the two in March'05 said "Greek").

So it seems that they stopped including the origins on the Certs sometime between March & May of 2005.

My first purchases from the South Store were in the summer of 2006, maybe June or July, I was there the second week that the South Store was open. My certificates did not state "Greek" even it was clear that that is where they came from.

BTW, the reason for the creation of Field Grade, which occurred in late'05/early'06, was all of the "Rack Grade" Greeks that weren't Service Grade but were a step (often a BIG step) above the usual condition of Rack Grade rifles.

FYI ...
