Try to upload my rare 5 euro banknote

Uploading picture is disappeard

Neat, Herman. I am amazed how well you could scan the notes. I thought there would have been safety precautions. I believe an old copy machine could not make a copy a euro banknote without some warning (I believe the word COPY appeared on the copy.)

Both notes look unc to me.

And only the left banknote is UNC, the other banknote without the silverstrip, is an light circulated banknote unfortunaly!

Cheers, Herman
