I've been looking at your site for a good two motnhs now, but this is my first comment. This particular piece of writing was very interesting and I printed off the code for myself (hope you dont mind). I was just wondering if there is any way to find out the YEAR that a euro banknote was printed. I know that new banknotes have a funny inky sort of smell so you'd be able to detect if it was printed today. I found the code 2002 on a banknote, so I assumed that that was when it was printed. But then my Dad found a note that said 2002 as well,and another note,and another note.Eventualy we started to get suspicious, and just assumed that was when the banks made some sort of change to the euro note. Because you're good at this sort of thing, would you be able to discover if there is a way to find out the year the note was printed?
