I get the same result. In O1 the 00/96 comes out as an n-dash but the 
00/80 is a rectangle (unrecognised character). However if I look at 
the source in System font, the euro is an unencoded € sign. The 00/80 
looks like a subscript double quote, whatever that's called:

23,– bis 35,– € pro Person

I don't normally have a problem with Euro signs.
