6. TWOB….. by Pat Clay, USA
I recently downloaded TWOB & was looking at the euros, and noticed that many of the listings are incorrect - the same KM is used from 2001 to present, even though the map changed around 2007, but I am not sure if the 2007 coins are the new or old map. I would like to confirm when the dates changed.
Can our European members please confirm for each country, whether the 2007 coins have the old map or the new map, and whether there are any errors or exceptions. If you know the KM codes for the new types that would be great. Also, for those countries which have changed the design (I think only Belgium and Spain), can a member please confirm which years used the old design and which years.

I will collate all of the information & summarise it for a later WBCC Newsmail, as well as making sure that TWOB has been updated. Pat Clay, pat@dakovo.com
