Rare 50 euro note

Post by kakur007 » Sun Sep 13, 2015 10:07 pm

Hi,

I have been searching around but not found any collector forums or other euro forums where to post my question. I have found Finnish 50 euro note with L serial. I have heard somewhere that they are quite rare? Where would be correct place to check it?

Any advice given is well appreciated! :)

All the best from Estonia :flag-ee: ,

I'm afraid you have been given slightly insufficient information. 50e notes with a serial number starting with L are not particularly rare. Some 372889 of them have been registered to EBT, of which 1707 by me.

Pay close attention to the six-digit printer code on the front. D001 ones were also very common back in the day, because those were printed by Setec. Setec has not printed any notes for a decade or so. Those might already have some value if they are in good condition, because they are getting rare. The last time I saw one was about a year ago. About the same goes for H006.

However, if you have a note with a printer code starting with H005 or H007, or something else not mentioned here, you may have a more valuable note in your hands, perhaps around 10x.

Disclaimer: I'm not collecting or buying/selling banknotes, there are better experts in here than me :)

Thank You for so fast reply! Appreciate it! :)

If anyone understands Finnish(I don't but local Estonian newspaper translated article) about 50 € note.

http://www.iltasanomat.fi/kotimaa/art-1 ... 41341.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Six-digit printer code: H006B3

So I assume it does not have any more value than marked on the bill?

Six-digit code starts with H005, seems to have quite a bit value.

Well, depends on whether you're able to find someone who is willing to pay for it above nominal value..

Here's a list of all H006/L/50 notes on EBT:

As you can see, they are getting less common, but perhaps they were too common back in the day.. I'll leave further analysis for others now :)
