I cannot seem to be able to find anything online about telling the difference between a true note and a German WW2 Forgery. Any thoughts?

From what I can see in the Britannia portrait, it looks genuine.

Here is one quick online reference that may help you if you use a good magnifying glass.

scroll down to bottom.

There are others on here that can help better than I can. Hopefully they will chime in.

I agree that it is probably a genuine note.  The diagnostic on the N in ENGLAND in the watermark indicates a genuine note and the serial number does not appear on the list of counterfeits on Pam West's site.

From the 9th Edition of English Paper Money, Edited by Pam West, 2017. B243: genuine £20 in VF is listed at £1100. The Bernhard forgery in VF £110.

Here is what's written about the forgeries, I can't figure out the earing on her right ear (to left). The right ear in the image or her actual right ear on the left. Click on image to make it larger.

Thanks for your help everyone. I have decided to send it into PMG and see what they say, based on what has been posted here and what I can see on the note. Thanks again!
