What is this scribbling? The text continues, but the picture is too big, so I can't get the whole text here to see. (you can see the whole picture in my blog: http://route66ws.blogspot.fi/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;)
It's Spanish, and it says: "Come back with more! OK? Thank you." ("¡Vuelve con más! ¿Vale? Gracias.")
Thanks from that! :D It's nice to know what does it mean, while the note is obviously not anymore in circulation. I know that those :note-10: were coming from 10 years old Spanish bundles, but of course it could have been any other language also. Now the mystery is solved, and the text is interesting :lol:

Btw, I, and probably some other people as well, have noticed that the printing of new :note-20: is sometimes really uncarefully made. Just like in your picture, the upper side of note differs partly from the main line, and is getting ripped easily when used. I haven't seen that kind of mistake before, but mostly that part is located just above the hologram. That has off course affected and will affect to the time that these notes are in circulation. :?

Where was that banknote from?
I noticed that there are countries which stamps banknotes much better than others and with different amounts of ink 8O

I just looked them up (they are, in fact, two different notes): top one, M/M. Bottom one, U/U.

Edit - this may be worth mentioning: I run my pictures through an "adjust colors" command in the the photo editing program that I use (Irfan View). In other words, those color shades may seem a little bit unusual, but the pictures aren't exactly "original".

I noticed that mainly in Europa :note-10: and :note-20:.
:note-20:s are different mainly in the purple ink (darker or lighter), while :note-10:s may be generally darker or lighter.
Even the cut can be different: :note-50: M/V Draghi seems to be cut 1/2 mm differently from other :note-50:s.
That cut may also have happened accidentally outside the factory.

I was given a bundle of around 20 notes of € 50, all of them with Duisenberg signature and of a lot of countries, so I guess those notes were sleeping for 13 years. One of these, this (M002xx / V016xxxxxxxx), had a handwritten mobile phone number with blue ballpen.

This bill was given to me by a customer at work. Don't know what it means.
I was hoping for a hit because of the date, but no luck :x

This is a nice one. A heart and the name Luca. How truly dear to write this on a banknote.
