An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

I sometimes wonder if you have time left to eat and sleep and other such monkey business, Geert...

Only one hit? I have four. ;D But I am a low volume tracker too. If one does it a lot, it is very time consuming indeed. So I just enter notes when I feel like it.

EBT got in some trouble shortly before Christmas (long and winding story). But now that the .com and .eu sites and databases got reunited, we are all happily tracking together again.

I'm a member there, but I haven't entered a lot of notes. Here's my profile anyway ;)

Arne,
  How does Euro Bill Tracker work?

You sign up at http://www.eurobilltracker.eu/ and then enter the denomination, printer code and serial number of every euro note you come across ... well, of as many notes as you can easily handle. I do it myself - not regularly but from time to time. Of course the highlights ;) of one's existence as a euro bill tracker are the "hits" - I enter a note in, say, Cologne, and a year later somebody gets and enters it in Barcelona. Cool.

Christian,
  I've only ever had 5 Euro banknotes - 3 5 Euros & 2 10 Euros,but I've still got my Irish 5 & 10 Euros.

I think that some members on there would think it was strange that Euro notes have turned up in New Zealand.

Aidan.

Oddly enough there already are a few. ;D

You can click on each serial number (those are incomplete, to prevent false hits) to see more info about that note. If you then click on the user name, you will notice that most of thse are travelers from Europe. Some also leave comments about the condition of a note, how they got it, etc.  And yes, most frequently entered are the €5 (and to a lesser extent €10 and €20) notes. People hardly ever get a €50 (or above) note back in change, so the chances of getting a "hit" with, say, a €100 note are slim ...
