Do you have a third of a ton?

I found 1/3 of a €50 note in the basket of a Dublin bike at Grand Canal Dock.[Dublin 2] this afternoon. It was in stand no.13. If anyone has the other 2/3 let me know and we’ll combine our powers!
color is too rich, looks counterfeit
More fool them. The person with two thirds of a note can redeem it for a new one at the Central Bank and their local branch will probably accept it.
Provided both serial numbers are on it. This guys 1/3 are useless as there is no serials
There is no need for serials. Where more than half of a mutilated note is presented, it shall be exchanged without a fee.
See article 3 of the ECB rules on the matter:
That said, the more I look at it I tend to agree with the poster above. Even badly folded and crumpled genuine notes rarely go white along the folded edges.
Unless theyve been through the washing machine, speaking from bitter experience here…
A ton is 100. Hit the dance floor drunken uncle.
(2/3)*50=33.333 repeating, aka a third of a ton.
Oh dear. Bit of a senior moment for oul Eamonn!
Funny tho :)
Once its more clearly more than half, any bank has to accept.
I used to eat my lunch in Blessington Basin and more than once I was approached by a gentleman full of woes about losing half a €50 note and how he really needed to get a bus and he’d be willing to sell me the half he still possessed for a €5 – the bank would definitely give me a brand new 50 note, he was too busy to go to the bank himself. Needless to say I always passed on the deal.
Dee not John.
