Aidan,If you would rewrite the Pick catalog in the way you are suggesting, you would be making a major error.There are 14 printers involved in printing the Euro banknotes. Thirteen of them are located in 11 countries of the Euro area, and one printer even is located in a non-Euro area country. The Euro banknotes they printed all are for multinational usage; they are legal tender in all 13 Euro countries, and several other countries too (Andorra, Kosovo, Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Vatican City).There is no such thing as an "Irish" Euro banknote. The best one can say is that some notes are printed in Ireland, but these notes may be put into circulation in any of the 13 Euro countries; they are circulating in all countries mentioned above, and are being provided by ATM's in any of the countries mentioned. In case you are fostering hopes of finding a Cyprian or Maltese Euro banknote in the future, your hopes will be in vain. These two countries will be provided all the Euro banknotes they need by the European Central Bank; and all banknotes will be coming from the existing stocks, so they may be showing any of the eleven serial letters already existing. So Pick is perfectly right by not attributing Euro banknotes to a specific country. In numismatics there in fact is such thing as a 'European Union'. You'd better get used to the idea. Regards,a3v1
