DESTRUCTION OF BELGIAN BANK NOTES. 
An employee of the Belgian Central Bank places Belgian franc notes of
2,000 on a rack before being destroyed in Brussels January 7, 2002. The
destruction of large amounts of francs notes, which started in
December, could take up to six month at an average of 320,000 notes
shredded per hour. There are still 230 million franc notes in
circulation. The Belgian franc remains legal tender alongside the euro
until February 28, 2002. ( 1 U.S. Dollar = 45.21 Belgian francs)
