What’s the front of a note?

The front is the side with the short code (windows and doors side)
The front is the side with the serial (the side with the bridges)

What’s the front of a note?

Well the question was posted by our webmaster in another thread started not long ago by Stefan. I just converted this into a poll. 8)

IMHO the front of the bill is the one with the short code. :?

I answered this question in my own post, and I'm doing it again here: the front is the side with the serial number.

But in response to this post, I took a look at some notes, and considered the side with the short code the front after all.
Oops, I've been marking the wrong side... :oops:
May the Euro be with you.

You know, I have never thought about it.
My opinion is that the side with the short code looks like a front :?
BTW, when I comment notes on EBT, I never write front and back but bridge side and window side.

The short code side is the front side, according to the European Union website: "Windows and gateways dominate the front side of each banknote... The reverse side of each banknote features a bridge from a particular age".
