... "in a good condition" doesn't mean "uncirculated"... . Then it's very difficult to find out, where this note came from. The serial-number is rather low for a french note. It can be possible, that that note is a "real" french note. Maybe it was staying for a long time in a money-box... . So I don't think, that the note is a pooling-note for Germany by France... .

Today I saw this bill in (almost) uncirculated condition:
€50 X1586... P009B4.
I am not sure if it is a pooling note, because it was the only €50 bill the ATM
gave me. But the ATM gave me 3 consecutive €20 bills with serial X0972 and
shortcode P009C4, so these ARE pooling notes.

First I remark, that those notes have very high serial-numbers (nearly the highest serial-numbers of german 20 €-notes at all until now) - so it's not probable, that those notes were produced before 2003.

So it's a bit strange, because the Netherlands produced in 2003 20 €-notes by themselves... . Maybe the Netherlands produced not enough 20 €-notes for their own demand. If the notes are uncirculated and you received them in the Netherlands, they must be pooling-notes, that's certain. A producing in 2004 ist not possible, because Germany doesn't produce 20 €-notes in this year.

BTW: In a few days I'll public a list here, where we are able to see all countries, producings and values at all - so it should be easier to analyze and cataloguize the pooling-system... :) I'm still waiting for an answer of Craco to any questions about technical things... .

In Finland user Alepub has entered portuguese 10€ notes with consecutive numbers. It seems that we have run out of 10€ notes. :o

But as far as I know there aren't any Portuguese €10 pooling notes, so I
have doubts if these bills are real. :?

He has been a member since August 2003 and has entered over 1200 notes. I trust him.

That's right, Elmo - Portugal didn't produce any 10 €-pooling-notes at all until now. But that doesn't mean much... . :) Maybe Alepub spent his holidays in Portugal, received a few brandnew 10-€-notes there, but didn't spent them all there... . Or he noticed the numbers in his holidays, but inserted them at home? We don't' know, from where he got those notes. Not all seeming strange things must be a fake... :? Maybe Alepub will read this thread and would tell us, from where those notes came from?

That doesn't mean much. In Germany, there were N-notes from day 1, although X produced all denominations at that time. So why should it be different in 2003?
Eurocracker wrote:If the notes are uncirculated and you received them in the Netherlands, they must be pooling-notes, that's certain.
Only "highly probable": Quite a few notes of the initial production (of 15-17 billion notes) went into the central and strategical reserves and might come now into circulation "bundle by bundle". There are always less than 10 billion notes in circulation.

German notes of 2004 are not yet printed.

What kind of tables will you publish?

But look here.
Nearly all Dutch €20 pooling notes (P/P) are circulating in Finland. I only have
one such bill with serial P0472... and shortcode P009E5.
