Serial number on the EURO NOTES
« on: February 25, 2017, 03:34:29 AM »
Hello to everyone, I have a question about the serial number on EURO NOTES.
I have a small collection with same numbers on upper and lower sides.
As example 22222 and 22222. Radar Repeater - A radar repeater is both a radar and a repeater.
Repeater - In a repeater serial number, the second half of the serial number is the same as the first half.
Is it worth collecting?
If yes, how can i find someone interested in buying my collection?
Thanks.

Hello EuroCollection.

Just so you know, the following is strictly my opinion!

If you have a choice between a regular serial number, and a "special" serial number (such as a radar number or repeater) it is definitely worthwhile to get the "special" serial number.  As far as I can see, there is at least some interest in banknotes with special serial numbers, though I would argue that for the most part it is only slightly significant.  I think that Asian collectors are big fans of "solid" serial numbers, such as 222222, though I've noticed they prefer solid 7's and solid 8's.

As for selling your collection, I always recommend eBay.  It would be difficult to sell an entire collection outside of eBay or another specialised auction house.  Selling Euros is particularly difficult, I believe, because they are not particularly attractive banknotes, they are fairly common, are quite expensive, and their forecast value for the near future is not looking good.

I hope that helps.  Cheers.

If you take your collection to a coin shop, they'll just buy it for whatever they want to buy it for and then put it on Ebay.

Get your camera out, photograph your notes, both sides, and put them on Ebay, yourself.  You will reach the largest number of  potential buyers and someone will buy your note.

Be advised that less than Uncirculated condition gets you down to face value on most notes.  Don't expect much of a premium over the price of a 'normally numbered' note, either, unless it's a solid number.
