Just before new :note-10: 2014 came out I've read in Slovenian news site that our notes are delivered from French National Bank. Now we only have :note-10: S/S notes.

It seems that with the new Europa notes serial first letter, except indicating printer, doesn't really have any meaning at all.

According to the ECB, among others Germany and the Joint European Tender (JET) countries (CY, EE, LU, MT, NL, SI, SK, FI) were responsible for the production of the first Europa :note-10: . Since these countries are known for outsourcing the production of their banknotes, the only way to find out which banknotes are German or from a JET country is to obtain a brand new bundle with the original wrapper with the country code on it. It appears that the Europa :note-10: with serial numbers starting with EA were wrapped in JET wrappers, and Europa :note-10: with serial numbers starting with EB, PA and XA were wrapped in German wrappers. This means that your EB :note-10: is actually a German :note-10: , and not a Slovak one. Only an EA :note-10: might be a Slovak one, but then again, it might be Cypriot, Estonian, Maltese, Dutch, etc., etc. as well.
Doesn't letter "E" stands for Oberthur Fiduciaire?
