No... this is a country where even using a :note-50: to pay a small expense will be met with a mix of suspicion and annoyance. :lol:

No, I didn't use one in the sense of actually paying something with them.
I did track a few when you could still receive them from the banks. However, I always exchanged them for other notes at another branch of the bank.

In 2007 (or around that mark; I'm not 100% certain), my parents sold the car we had back then. The new buyers paid in cash and the majority of the notes were :note-500: . But my parents didn't do anything with them apart from depositing the notes on their bank account.

Now with the :note-500: abandoned and :note-200: being the largest note, I've used :note-200: for purchases of >5€ a few times, but only at automatic cash registers at my local supermarket. This normally gives 9x :note-20: ,1x :note-10: and 1x :note-5: as well as some coins :lol:
