Greece 10 Lepta 1869 with “D” countermark. I cant find this countermark in Wilski's or McKenzie's books.

Tilt your head to the right and you will see three letters, separated by dots. If the third one is an R, the script is not Greek

Thanks grimper
Yes, you're right, Figleaf, but I can't read the letters properly
I'll look with a magnifying glass

I would bet on Greek letters, capital delta, ypsilon xi. Not that I know what it stands for...
