Many ATM collectors ask to us how it will be the situation in Spain with the arrival of the Euro ...
A few days ago, an English
collector who this summer has visited our country, wrote to us :
This funny situation illustrates
quite well the situation of the Spain Post offices in relation to the ATMs
; An official date of issue for the ATMs does not exist, either a date
of withdrawal, the different models are sent to the most part of Post offices
without order and each Post office receives only some of the year models.
Currently most of the main Post offices uses papers of the present year,
but in many offices models of previous years can be still found.
At collecting level this
means that when the Euro in the post offices will be implanted, will
appear ATMs in Euros of most of the papers, even of oldest ones !
From here, and before the
avalanche of new variants that it could suppose, our suggestion or recommendation
will be to establish the collection - if possible - considering the
date of issue of each one of the models, as if it was a normal change
in postal rates.
Serve this explanation as
a information and from here that everyone decides what must collect.
