Rare 50 euro bill?????

Post by gloup81 » Mon Jan 18, 2010 8:05 pm

Hi there all
about a week after the first circulation of the euro notes (2001), i came across a strange 50euro bill. at first sight, its flawless...actually, i took it from a bank's atm. but, there is something wrong with it. the hologram is missing. i looked at it using an amature microscope and there are no signs of abuse on it (i thought that somehow someone riped it off). Under a uv light, all marks are visible, the texture is real, the paper feels real.
Is there any chance that this bill has a collectible value?
Do you have any information about bills that accidentally came into circulation with this flaw?
