True. I don't think that it having been lent to a foreign country hurts its value at all. What does effect it is condition. While the numbers being stamped on it are not a large effect to condition, it takes it just that little bit further from being mint. Given a choice between one with extra stamped numbers and one that does not, all things else being equal, most would choose the latter.

But then there also the snobs that look down at Greek return bayonets for no good reason.
