origin of Spanish ATMs (4)
Among the different security and
control requirements laid down by Correos with the manufacturers
of the sticky labels was that from 2001 each roll must have an adhesive
label with the corresponding numeration.
This numeration must be of
12 digits in the following format:
Number 9 (fix), two digits
corresponding to the design of the label, two digits for
the year of manufacture and finally 7 digits that correspond
to the number of roll.
The numbering of rolls also appears,
as it has already been showed in previous articles, on the packing boxes
and the despatch notes to the post offices.
In this sealing label from a roll made in May 2004 by R.C.M.-F.N.M.T.
we read the numeration 90204000458:
The 9 is fix, appears in all
the labels. The 02 would correspond to the second design
made by the company. The 04 would indicate that it was manufactured
in 2004. And finally, the 0000458 corresponding to the number
of the roll.
(It is the label from a roll of
the paper Spain 2004 - Royal wedding).
And finally, to finish this series
of articles we publish a table-summary with a compendium of the
manufacture and issue data of the ATMs models - thermal
type issued in Spain.
